Hall of Fame Guidelines

All nominations must be submitted to the Hall of Fame Committee by the end of each calendar year by a current NETSA Member, to be considered for induction the next year. Each nomination must be accompanied by a Biography of the nominee, listing their qualifications to become a member of the NETSA Hall of Fame.

The Hall of Fame Committee will do a background check, by the January Board Meeting, to make sure each nominee meets the requirements to become a NETSA Hall of Fame Member.

The Hall of Fame Committee will then place in nomination to the full NETSA Board, the names and Biography of all nominees.

The Full Board will then vote by secret ballot, on the nominees, at their January Board Meeting or by absentee ballot sent to the NETSA President (each Board Member present will be allowed to vote for up to 3 candidates). The President of NETSA will count the votes and confirm the top vote recipients. The 2 living people receiving the highest number of votes, and the 1 historical person receiving the highest number of votes, will be elected into the NETSA Hall of Fame for that year.

The Induction Ceremonies for the new Hall of Fame members will be held at the NETSA Trade Show and Convention on Saturday Evening that same Spring.

Criteria & requirements to be considered as a nominee:

1) Must have been active in the Tire and/or Vehicle Service Industry in New England for at least 20 years.

2) Must have distinguished him or herself in our Industry and Community as a reputable and honored Leader.
