July 6: Deadline for TIA Hall of Fame entries
Nominations for the 2015 Tire Industry Hall of Fame are due Monday, July 6.
The Tire Industry Association (TIA) says 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 award may be presented 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 Hall of Fame recipients will be inducted at the Tire Industry Honors Awards Ceremony on Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, at the Tropicana Las Vegas. The event takes place prior to the Global Tire Expo – Powered by TIA at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show, Nov. 3-6, 2015.
