NABC Calls for PRIDE Award NominationsThe National Auto Body Council (NABC) has issued a call for nominations for its annual Pride Awards.
The awards, which are presented at the Collision Industry Night of Achievement during NACE, are meant to recognize those groups or individuals who selflessly contribute time and energy in an attempt to improve their communities and the world around them. And when they do so, they improve the image of the collision industry and all who work in it. The PRIDE awards are not about what a person or organization does within the industry, but to recognize those in the industry for what they do outside of the industry.
“I’m looking forward to the the PRIDE Awards continued success,” said Janet Chaney, Pride committee chairman. “2005 nominating forms are being sent to NABC members, and all industry-related businesses. Please pass this information to your colleagues and co-workers, or anyone else that can bring deserving nominees to NABC's attention.
“In addition to the nomination forms,” Chaney continued, “NABC provides a downloadable form on its website, www.autobodycouncil.org . The form can also be filled out online. You can also phone the NABC office at 888-667-7433. Tell the office you have a nominee, and you will get a return call from a PRIDE committee member to complete the process.”
The deadline for receiving nominations is September 15, 2005. Winners will be notified by October 15, 2005. Award presentations will take place at the next NACE Convention which will be held in Las Vegas, NV in November 2005.
"The Mission Statement of the NABC Pride Committee is to identify, recognize and publicize those who work in the collision industry, that have selflessly performed good deeds, and have thus contributed to a positive image of the industry as a whole,” Chaney stated. “The PRIDE Awards seek to find true hero's who selflessly, and without thoughts of recognition, devote much of themselves to make a better world.
“We know that there are many deserving people within our industry,” Chaney concluded. “Many of them do good for its own sake and do not feel a need to be recognized for their selfless acts. It is up to us to make sure they are acknowledged and thanked. Please help us identify and recognize these people.”
