Who qualifies for the awards?

Who can make a nomination?

  • Anyone involved with and knowledgeable about the equipment and event rental industry may nominate a deserving ARA member.

How are the Industry Awards nominations judged?

  • Nominations for qualified individuals will be reviewed and rated by the Industry Awards Selection Committee, which is led by the ARA board chair. Committee members appointed by the ARA board chair include representatives from ARA past directors, the ARA Foundation board, associate members and a past industry award recipient. Tony Conant, ARA CEO, serves on the committee in an advisory capacity and also appoints an ARA staff member to the committee. Nominations are kept confidential. Nominees are not notified by ARA of their nomination.
  • Candidates are evaluated based on eligibility to meet the award criteria. ARA does not notify those submitting nominations of the status of their nominee.

What makes a successful nomination?

  • All Industry Award nominations must be complete to qualify for judging. Applications that are detailed and descriptive and include supporting documentation are more likely to be successful. These details will be used only for judging and will be kept confidential. They will not be published in any form.
