ARTBA Foundation seeks Transportation Development Hall of Fame nominations
The American Road & Transportation Builders Association (ARTBA) Foundation is seeking nominations for its 2011 “Transportation Development Hall of Fame” for individuals for a family from the public and private sectors who have made extraordinary contributions to U.S. transportation development or demonstrated exceptional leadership throughout their lifetime.
Launched in 2010 as part of the Foundation’s 25th anniversary, ARTBA says the Hall of Fame is the highest place of honor for transportation design and construction professionals.
The association just launched a new Website — www.artbahalloffame.org — that contains background information, the 2011 nomination form and details about the inaugural class announced last November.
Nominations for the next class are considered for two categories:
Transportation Design & Construction Industry Innovators: Honors the men and women who discovered or created a “game changing” product or process that significantly advanced transportation design, construction, and/or safety. It seeks to honor the original innovator.
Transportation Design & Construction Industry Leaders (Individuals or Families): Recognizes men, women and families who have made significant contributions — beyond just having successful businesses or careers—that have notably helped advance the interests and image of the transportation design, construction, and safety industry.
Nomination forms must be received by close of business Friday, June 1.
The classes of 2010 and 2011 will be honored during a Sept. 7 dinner ARTBA’s “TransOvation” industry innovation conference to be held in Lansdowne, Va.
Anyone can nominate a candidate. ARTBA membership is not required. Individuals can be living or inducted to the Hall posthumously. The selection process is extremely competitive, and only a very limited number of individuals will be inducted annually.
A committee of judges that includes transportation and construction industry journalists will select the inductees. Two-thirds of the committee must vote in favor of a nominee’s induction.
