The National Auto Body Council (NABC) is now accepting nominations for its two industry awards that recognize shops for making a positive impact on their local communities and the collision repair industry: the Award of Distinction and the Body Shop Image Award.
The Award of Distinction recognizes bravery, philanthropy, charity, and selfless acts of kindness by individuals or groups in the collision industry who selflessly give of themselves for the benefit of others, while helping further the NABC mission to promote a positive image of the collision industry.
The Body Shop Image Award calls attention to the beneficial impact an attractive, well-designed facility has on its surrounding community. This award embodies the spirit and mission of the NABC to promote the image of the collision repair industry and become a vital asset to the neighborhood. Any body shop that completes a remodeling project during the 2014 calendar year can be nominated. One winner and three runners up will be recognized.
As part of its 2014 recognition program, the NABC plans to call attention throughout the year to outstanding individuals and body shops whose extraordinary efforts make a positive impact in their communities and the collision industry.
In addition to selecting overall Award of Distinction and Body Shop Image Award winners, the NABC plans to recognize and share nominations throughout the year.
“Any time someone in the industry does something worthy, we’d like to encourage folks to go the NABC website and fill out a nomination form for either award,” said Kent Seavey, NABC awards program chair. “The individuals and body shops that are recognized will be featured in our member newsletter and automatically become nominees for both the Award of Distinction and the Body Shop Image Award.”
Winners of both awards will be announced in November 2014, at the Collision Industry Conference (CIC) during the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, NV. Each finalist will also be featured and recognized on the NABC website and in other publicity efforts.
