Deadline for third-party nominations or self-nominations is Friday, September 6. To be eligible, nominees must be a designated representative of a current National Auto Body Council member company. Board members are elected for three-year terms. “As a result of strong active Board leadership, our membership has grown significantly over the past few years as more and more companies experience the value and benefits of participating in NABC initiatives,” said Chuck Sulkala, NABC Executive Director. “We welcome nominations from all segments of the collision industry for leaders who are willing to invest the time and effort to help guide the organization in our ongoing mission to identify, develop, and implement community based initiatives that promote a positive image of our industry.” NABC initiatives include the successful and popular Recycled Rides program. Almost 800 vehicles have been donated to deserving individuals and nonprofit organizations since the program’s inception in 2007. Other NABC community service programs include First Responder Emergency Extrication (FREE), the Distracted Driving initiative, and support for disabled veterans through Operation Comfort’s AutoMotivation program. NABC also annually recognizes individuals or organizations that demonstrate excellence or selfless service to others through its Award of Distinction
