Mike Baron Wins 2018 Allegiance Award, CLCA’s Top Honor
In recognition of his years of service and leadership, the California Landscape Contractors Association has presented Mike Baron with its Allegiance Award, the association’s most prestigious honor.
The award, which is given only to a green industry professional who has been a member of the association for a minimum of 15 years and who has had a significant effect on the industry, was presented during the association’s annual Leadership Conference in Ontario February 5.
To say Mike is a tireless spokesperson for water use efficiency in California would be a gross understatement. He was integral to the establishment of the CLCA Water Management Certification Program. He also helped build CLCA’s approach to the 2010 Model Water Efficient Landscape Ordinance (MWELO) update. He has taught water management and MWELO classes and has participated in numerous CLCA Landscape Water Conferences as a speaker and vendor.
When presenting the award, 2017 Allegiance Award winner Eric Watanabe praised Mike “for his tireless efforts and willingness to promote CLCA and the green industry.”
