AEM to Open Hall of Fame Nominations in June

The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) will open nominations for the 2011 AEM Hall of Fame program in June.

As in past years, in 2011 the nominees will be evaluated by an independent panel of industry experts. The AEM Hall of Fame seeks to create a wider public understanding and appreciation of the industry's role in global economic and social prosperity, not only in the past but for the future. More than 35 industry leaders have been inducted into the Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame was created in 1993 to honor the pioneering individuals who have invented, managed, built, and led the off-road equipment industry. The Hall of Fame is AEM’s way to recognize, celebrate and preserve the history of these outstanding industry leaders.

Candidates will be evaluated on five criteria critical to the health of the equipment manufacturing industry: 1) innovation, 2) industry contributions, 3) leadership, 4) corporate citizenship/social responsibility and 5) sustainability. For each category, nominators must submit brief essays to support their nominee's candidacy. AEM poses questions that will help nominators focus their essays to explain in the best way possible why the nominee should be considered for the AEM Hall of Fame.

Individuals interested in nominating candidates for the Hall of Fame can see a sample nomination form template at the Hall of Fame website. AEM urges nominators to read the sample nomination form template carefully in preparation for filling out the online form.
