TIA seeks nominations for Hall of Fame

March 3, 2015

The Tire Industry Association (TIA) is accepting nominations for the 2015 Tire Industry Hall of Fame.

The deadline for nominations is Monday, July 6, 2015. A nomination form is available on www.tireindustry.org/hall-fame.

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 Inductions will take place Monday, Nov. 2, 2015, as part of TIA’s Tire Industry Honors Awards Ceremony, which takes place prior to the Global Tire Expo – Powered by TIA, Nov. 3-6, 2015 in Las Vegas.

“The Tire Industry Honors Awards Ceremony is one of the highlights of the year for TIA and the industry," says TIA Executive Vice President Roy Littlefield. "The committee is forward to selecting another group of honorees to induct into the Hall of Fame this year."
