The NTCA held its best new event at TISE again this year. The 2nd annual Ambassador’s Reception is an event to appreciate NTCA ambassadors and announce the Ambassadors of the year for 2023.
Additionally, the two 2023 Craftspersons of the year receive their awards at this event.
2023 NTCA Ambassadors of the Year
For the second year in a row, the NTCA acknowledges two ambassadors, one associate ambassador, and one contractor ambassador.
This year, Terry Hall of Ardex won the associate ambassador award and John Mourelatos of Mourelatos Tile Pro in Arizona won the contractor award.
If you know either one of these individuals then you know they are well-deserving of the recognition and both are significant contributors to the tile industry.
Congratulations to Terry Hall and John Mourelatos!
2022 Craftspersons of the Year
As was previously announced, the two Craftsperson of the Year winners, Trinity Vigil, the commercial winner, and Gabriel Cortez (residential) were presented with their plaques.
The plaques were crafted by Angie Halford Re of Unique Mosaics.
To be considered for this honor, nominees were required to have a minimum of 15 years of installation experience and must still be setting tile today. They were evaluated on artistry, technical correctness, problem solving, continuing education, and mentoring or leading others.
