The National Automatic Merchandising Association has opened nominations for its highly awaited 2022 Industry Awards. Nominations must be submitted by Feb. 11.
The annual awards program recognizes exemplary leaders in convenience services in three distinctions. NAMA members can nominate peers and colleagues for Industry Person of the Year, Operator of the Year and Allied Member of the Year.
The three awards will be presented in person at the NAMA Show in Chicago in April.
Nominees must be a member of NAMA, and be active in the national association, its state councils and their own communities. Candidates should be innovative, possess a willingness to expand conventional practices and adhere to ethical business standards in accordance with NAMA's code of ethics.
