Nominations for the NABC Changing and Saving Lives Award and NABC President’s Award will run through Aug. 1
Charlotte, N.C.—The National Auto Body Council has announced it is opening the nominations for its 2022 awards — the NABC Changing and Saving Lives Award and the NABC President’s Award, which formally recognize individuals and companies for their leadership of and commitment to improving the collision repair industry.
The NABC President’s Award is designed to honor the NABC member company that supports the vision of the National Auto Body Council through donation of their time and resources. Companies will be nominated by the NABC Board of Directors, and members at all levels of NABC membership are eligible. The winner will be named during the annual SEMA Show in Las Vegas, and will be recognized on a new lifetime traveling trophy. In addition, the NABC will make contributions to two organizations in the recipient’s honor: one sanctioned by NABC and one by the recipient.
The NABC Changing and Saving Lives Award recognizes an individual in the collision repair industry who has delivered exemplary service in the NABC mission of Changing and Saving Lives Every Day, far beyond their role in the industry. Individuals may be nominated by a member of the NABC Board of Directors or by the public. This award will be presented during this fall, and the recipient will receive an engraved trophy to signify their accomplishments. In addition, the NABC will make contributions to two organizations in the recipient’s honor: one sanctioned by NABC and one chosen by the recipient.
“As our organization has grown and evolved, so has our awards program to recognize the industry’s leaders,” said Bill Garoutte, president and CEO of the National Auto Body Council. “We were honored to present the 2021 NABC President’s Award to Farmers Insurance and the NABC Changing and Saving Lives Award to Josh Byers, and look forward to seeing the deserving nominees for this year’s awards.”
