“We have many heroes who work tirelessly and give generously of their time, talent and resources to promote the professionalism and integrity of our collision industry,” said Marie Peevy, Chair of NABC’s Awards Program. "We want to hear more about these individuals, who they are, hear their stories, so that we can recognize and honor their efforts."
Winners of the NABC awards will be announced at the Collision Industry Conference during the SEMA Show in November in Las Vegas.
Nominations are being accepted in three award categories:
The Award of Distinction recognizes individuals for bravery, philanthropy, charity and selfless acts of kindness. It transcends the rigors of daily business to uncover those helping the world around them without a thought of recognition for themselves. Any individual, business organization, or group employed in a collision industry-related segment, such as collision repair facility, vehicle manufacturer, supplier/vendor, educator, insurer, independent appraiser or trade association is eligible to be nominated.
The Body Shop Image Award recognizes the most significant improvements made to a shop’s interior and exterior. Any body shop completing a remodeling during the calendar year 2016 is eligible to be nominated. One winner and three runners-up will be recognized.
The Excellence in Community Service Award celebrates outstanding charitable efforts and volunteerism by collision industry individuals and businesses. The award recognizes exceptional service initiatives that improve the quality of life for individuals or the community at large.
