The SCDF William Feathers Award of Distinction was created in honor of William (Bill), the founder of SCDF and his influence on our community.
Bill Feathers was a marketing pioneer in the design/construction industry and was a founder of numerous real estate orientated organizations including Society of Marketing Professional Services (SMPS), The Downtown Breakfast Club, LA Headquarters`Assoc., & Westside Urban Forum and Southern California Development Forum.
A man of humble beginnings, Bill's greatest desire was to help others succeed. Bill was highly personable, kind, compassionate, & extremely generous with his business knowledge. He loved Los Angeles and all that it had to offer its citizens and visitors.
Each year SCDF honors an individual who, like Bill, shares that same passion for Los Angeles and has made significant contributions in our industry.
