The National Auto Body Council (NABC) announced it is opening the nominations for its 2023 awards — the NABC® Changing and Saving Lives Award and the NABC President’s Award — which formally recognize individuals and companies for their leadership of and commitment to improving the collision repair industry.
The NABC President’s Award is designed to honor the NABC member company that supports the vision of the NABC through donation of their time and resources. Companies will be nominated by the NABC board of directors, and members at all levels of NABC membership are eligible. The winner will be named later this year and will be recognized on the lifetime traveling trophy. In addition, the NABC will make contributions to a philanthropic organization in the recipient’s honor.
The NABC Changing and Saving Lives Award recognizes an individual in the collision repair industry who has delivered exemplary service in the NABC mission of “Changing and Saving Lives Every Day”, far beyond their role in the industry. Individuals may be nominated by a member of the NABC board of directors or by the public. This award will be presented this fall, and the recipient will receive an engraved trophy to signify their accomplishments. In addition, the NABC will make a contribution to a charitable organization in the recipient’s name.
“As our organization has grown and evolved, so has our awards program to recognize the industry’s leaders,” said Debby Robinson, executive director of the NABC. “We were honored to present the 2022 NABC President’s Award to Enterprise and the NABC Changing and Saving Lives Award to Michael Quinn, and look forward to seeing the deserving nominees for this year’s awards.”
Deserving individuals may be nominated for the NABC Changing and Saving Lives award by a member of the NABC board of directors or by the public. The nominee should demonstrate the following criteria:
- Enthusiasm for giving back to the community

- Partnership or tie with local community
- Willingness to volunteer
- Commitment to helping others
