NABC Adds Community Service Award

NABC Adds Community Service Award to Awards Program, Extends Nomination Deadline

Annual awards program recognizes individuals and companies in the collision industry whose philanthropic and charitable efforts have made a significant impact in their local communities.

nabc-logoThe National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced a third category – the Excellence in Community Service – to its annual awards program to recognize individuals and companies in the collision industry whose  philanthropic and charitable  efforts have made  a significant impact in their local communities.

To encourage additional nominations for the new Excellence in Community Service Award, NABC has extended the deadline for nominations in all categories, including the Body Shop Image Award and the Award of Distinction, to Oct. 15th.

The Excellence in Community Service Award was created to celebrate outstanding charitable efforts and volunteerism by collision industry businesses. The award recognizes exceptional service initiatives that improve the quality of life for individuals or the community at large.

Nominations could be for a specific project, for example, a special fundraiser to benefit a local community cause, a charitable service to help an individual in need, or to highlight a company’s ongoing commitment to give back to their local communities.

“Our industry is full of generous individuals and businesses who donate their time, talent and resources and have made a beneficial impact in their communities and in our industry,” said Marie Peevy, chair of the NABC’s 2015 Awards Program. “We encourage our colleagues to send nominations about their own service initiatives or those of other individuals and companies whose efforts exemplify the professionalism and integrity of our collision industry.”

Nominations are also encouraged for NABC’s other two prestigious awards:

The Award of Distinction recognizes individuals for bravery, philanthropy, charity and selfless acts of kindness. It transcends the rigors of daily business to uncover those helping the world around them without a thought of recognition for themselves. Any individual, business organization or group employed in a collision industry-related segment, such as collision repair facility, vehicle manufacturer, supplier/vendor, educator, insurer, independent appraiser or trade association, is eligible to be nominated.

The Body Shop Image Award recognizes the most significant improvements made to a shop’s interior and exterior. Any body shop completing a remodeling during the calendar year 2014 is eligible to be nominated. One winner and three runners-up will be recognized.

Winners of all three NABC awards will be announced at the Collision Industry Conference during the SEMA Show in November in Las Vegas.

Online nominations and more information for both awards are available at For more information on the NABC Awards program, contact Peevy at [email protected] or call (630) 881-7945.
