The National Auto Body Council is again accepting nominations for collision repair facilities that have had a beneficial impact on their communities through building and design improvements. All nominations need to be submitted by September 15, 2013.
The National Auto Body Council would like to recognize Duane Rouse of ABRA Auto Body & Glass of Salt Lake City, UT, for its achievement in providing remarkable visual and functional improvements to its facility.
The competition, which will run through early September, applies to any body shop remodeling project completed during the calendar year 2013. One winner and three runners-up will be recognized. Each will receive visual recognition on the NABC website. The name of every facility entering the competition will be listed on the website as well. In addition, the winner will receive a trip for two in the continental U.S., 2 nights stay, and some spending money, with the whole trip package capped at $1,500.
“Our industry continues to exhibit its determination to continually improve its professionalism,” said National Auto Body Council Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “The remarkable visual and functional improvements in our places of business symbolize this advance, and they need to be shared with the general public. Not only is it important, it’s going to be a lot of fun. We’re really looking forward to it.”
Those wishing to submit a shop for consideration should submit a nomination form to the NABC with three before and after exterior images and one before and after interior image of the facility. The nominating form and a complete description of the nominating process is available at: http://www.autobodycouncil.org/files/NABC_nominate_imageaward.pdf
