The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is accepting nominations for the 2014 Tire Industry Hall of Fame through July 7, 2014.

A nomination form is available for download at or by contacting Donna Sage, TIA’s director of marketing, at [email protected] or 301-430-7280, ext. 102.

The Hall of Fame is open to individuals in the tire industry, including manufacturers, inventors, publishers, equipment suppliers, tire association executives, tire dealers, tire and rubber recyclers and retreaders. The Hall of Fame may be awarded posthumously.

Inductees are chosen based on the following criteria: their contributions of new ideas, practices and/or innovations that promote the health and well-being of the tire industry; their exemplary and distinguished service in the tire industry; and the respect of their peers.

Contributions in civic, cultural, educational or charitable endeavors will be considered, but are not a primary consideration as attributes for selection.

“The tire industry has so many individuals that are worthy of recognition and it is an honor for us to induct the honorees each year,” says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield.

The Hall of Fame Inductions will take place on Monday, Nov. 3, 2014, as part of TIA’s Tire Industry Honors Awards Ceremony, which takes place prior to the Global Tire Expo – Powered by TIA, Nov. 4-7 in Las Vegas.
