Two Weeks to Go to Nominate a Future Hall of Famer
If you want to nominate someone for the 2016 Tire Industry Hall of Fame, you are running out of time. The Tire Industry Association (TIA) will continue to accept nominations only through Friday, July 1.
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 Hall of Fame recipients will be inducted at the Tire Industry Honors Awards Ceremony on Monday, Oct. 31, 2016, at the Tropicana Las Vegas. The event takes place prior to the Global Tire Expo -- Powered by TIA at the Specialty Equipment Market Associaton (SEMA) Show, which runs Nov. 1-4 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
