NABC Opens PRIDE Award Nominations

NABC says its renewed approach to award process includes the formation of a PRIDE committee, outreach from NABC corporate members and an improved online nomination form.


The National Auto Body Council (NABC) has opened nominations for the 15th annual PRIDE Awards, which recognize members of the collision repair industry who donate time, energy and financial resources to worthy causes outside the industry.

NABC says the PRIDE Awards are emblematic of its core mission: bringing positive attention to an industry that has traditionally suffered from less-than-flattering public perception.

“The PRIDE Awards are part of NABC’s DNA and an integral part of its history,” said NABC Executive Director Chuck Sulkala. “They helped establish NABC’s profile in the public eye and have effectively focused the consumer’s attention on the many good men and women in our industry who play a part in making the world a better place.”

The award process is undergoing refinements this year to encourage more nominations and heighten the award’s profile, NABC says. A PRIDE committee, headed by PRIDE Co-Chairs Janet Chaney and bob Keith, will facilitate the submission of nominees and help drive the project’s momentum until the awards presentation takes place at the Collision Industry Achievement luncheon at the SEMA Show.


In addition, NABC corporate members will be actively engaged in soliciting nominations for the first time, significantly expanding PRIDE’s outreach.

To make nominations easier, NABC has improved its nomination form, making it available for online submissions or as a printed version.

“These changes are designed to broaden PRIDE’s search for nominees and keep the award in the forefront of everybody’s thoughts,” said Chaney. “The award may be a longstanding fixture, but it continues to evolve. This is part of NABC’s heritage and legacy, and that’s something of which we can all be proud. Please help us find the industry’s unsung heroes in 2010.”
