BOWIE, Md. (June 6, 2013) — The Tire Industry Association (TIA) has issued a reminder that it is accepting nominations for its Tire Industry Hall of Fame until 5 p.m. EDT Friday, July 5.
The Hall of Fame is open to any individuals important in the tire industry, including manufacturers, inventors, publishers, equipment suppliers, tire association executives, tire dealers, tire and rubber recyclers, and retreaders, TIA said. Posthumous nominations are acceptable, it said.
TIA chooses Hall of Fame inductees based primarily on contributions of new ideas to the industry; practices and/or innovations that promote the industry's health and well-being; exemplary and distinguished service to the industry; and the respect of their peers. Contributions in civic, cultural, educational or charitable endeavors may also be considered, the association said.
The 2013 Hall of Fame inductions will take place Nov. 4, at TIA's Tire Industry Honors event in Las Vegas during the Specialty Equipment Market Association Show.
