Deadline for Nominations to Tire Industry Hall of Fame Is July 3

Posted on June 6, 2017

The deadline to submit nominations to the Tire Industry Hall of Fame is July 3, 2017.

Nominations can be submitted to the Tire Industry Association (TIA) here.

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. Someone may be inducted into the hall of fame posthumously.

Inductees are chosen based on the following criteria:

  • contributions of new ideas,
  • practices promoting the well-being of the tire industry,
  • service that is exemplary within the tire industry, and
  • respect towards their peers.

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

The 2017 inductees to the hall of fame will be recognized Oct. 30, 2017, as part of TIA’s Tire Industry Honors Awards Ceremony, which takes place prior to the Global Tire Expo, powered by TIA, Oct. 31 – Nov. 3, 2017.

Questions regarding the hall of fame may be directed to LeAnn Harley, director of marketing and communications, at lharley@tireindustry.org or 301.430.7280 x 102.
