Five reasons to make an ARA Industry Awards nomination

July 2020

The equipment and event rental industry is full of everyday heroes who quietly go about making the industry a better place. The ARA Industry Awards were created to celebrate these people who deserve recognition and appreciation. The awards include:

  • Rental Hall of Fame: ARA developed this prestigious award in 2000 to honor those individuals who have made a significant impact to the equipment and event rental industry at the national and/or international level with their vision and leadership. This is the highest industry honor and nominations should reflect exemplary service or contributions.
  • Industry Ambassador Award: Recognizes an individual who has demonstrated long-term leadership and service to the association at the national, state or local levels.
  • Exemplary Service Award: Recognizes an individual or group that has made a significant contribution in a defined area of association service (government affairs, education, technology, workforce development, etc.).
  • Industry Impact Award: Recognizes a manufacturer, supplier and/or independent manufacturer representative rental industry professional who made a significant impact on the association and/or industry during the past two years.

Here are five reasons to nominate someone for an ARA Industry Award:

  • Because they deserve it. Take this opportunity to recognize dedicated colleagues.
  • It’s not an ego thing. Knowing someone nominated them makes it truly meaningful.
  • It’s good to sing about the unsung heroes. ARA members often interact with each other in ways that others do not and see contributions that should be recognized. 
  • It’s motivational. Recognizing someone’s accomplishments inspires them to do even more and others to want to become more involved.
  • Let them shine. The ARA Industry Awards recipients provide shining examples of industry excellence across all ARA membership.
