PORT CHARLOTTE, FL (July 7, 2023) –- The National Auto Body Council® is continuing to seek nominations for its 2023 awards – the NABC® Changing and Saving Lives Award and the NABC® President’s Award, which formally recognize individuals and companies for their leadership of and commitment to improving the collision repair industry.

The NABC® President’s Award is designed to honor the NABC® member company that supports the vision of the National Auto Body Council® through donation of their time and resources. Companies will be nominated by the NABC® Board of Directors, and members at all levels of NABC® membership are eligible. The winner will be named later this year, and will be recognized on the lifetime traveling trophy. In addition, the NABC® will make contributions to a philanthropic organization in the recipient’s honor.

The NABC® Changing and Saving Lives Award recognizes the individual in the collision repair industry who has delivered exemplary service in the NABC® mission of Changing and Saving Lives Every Day, far beyond their role in the industry. Individuals may be nominated by a member of the NABC® Board of Directors or by the public. This award will be presented this fall, and the recipient will receive an engraved trophy to signify their accomplishments. In addition, the NABC® will make a contribution to a charitable organization in the recipient’s name.

“As our organization has grown and evolved, so has our awards program to recognize the industry’s leaders,” said Debby Robinson, executive director of the National Auto Body Council®. “We were honored to present the 2022 NABC® President’s Award to Enterprise and the NABC® Changing and Saving Lives Award to Michael Quinn, and look forward to seeing the deserving nominees for this year’s awards.”
