CHICAGO — Nominations for the National Auto Body Council’s Pride Award are being received in record numbers, according to Stacy Bartnik, NABC’s Pride Committee Chairman.

In making her announcement at NABC’s recent board meeting held in Chicago, Bartnik noted that the Pride Committee had already received more than thirty nominations. “This number already surpasses anything we’ve experienced in the past,” said Bartnik. “

The National Auto Body Council Pride Awards are given annually to those individuals or groups working in the Collision Industry who selflessly give their time and energy to help better the world in which we live. The award is not designed to recognize what a person or organization does within the industry, but to recognize actions or work they do out the industry.

The Pride Awards are bestowed at the Industry Night of Achievement during NACE week.

“We want to recognize people who make us feel good about working in our Industry,” said Bartnik. “While rare, the 2003 Award winners included an individual, Dan Christiansen, who literally was willing to risk his own life to save the lives of others involved in the worst multiple-vehicle highway crash in Wisconsin history. How can you not want to stand and applaud these people?”

The deadline for nominations is Sept. 15. To nominate an individual or group for a Pride Award go to the NABC web site: www.autobodycouncil.org.

The U.S. House of Representatives passed the “Choice in Automobile Retail Sales (CARS) Act” (H.R. 4468) with bipartisan support (221 to 197), with five Democrats and each Republican member voting for the bill.

If passed into law, the SEMA-supported bill would prohibit the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from finalizing the agency’s proposed federal emissions standards for light- and medium-duty motor vehicles model years ’27 to ’32, which intends for electric vehicles (EVs) to make up 67% of all new vehicles sales by 2032. The CARS Act also prevents future EPA motor-vehicle emissions regulations that would mandate certain technologies or limit the availability of vehicles based on engine type.
