The Association of Equipment Managers is accepting nominations for inductees into the Construction Equipment Hall of Fame. Any person from the construction equipment related industries may nominate an individual, living or deceased, whose achievements were made in manufacturing, distribution rental or end user segments of the industry.
The contributions of the nominee may be from any aspect of the construction equipment industry to include but not limited to; innovation, achievements, leadership, corporate / social responsibility, engineering or invention accomplishments and educational impact. The nominees will be reviewed by a board of impartial judges from major industry associations augmented by an advisory panel of experts from throughout the industry.
The goal of the Construction Equipment Hall of Fame is to create wide public understanding and appreciation of the industry’s role in global economic and social prosperity with increased focus on issues such as infrastructure renewal and workforce shortages.
“We face the challenges of a shrinking workforce, insufficient funding for an overburdened infrastructure and a changing global marketplace,” says Al Cervero, AEM senior vice president. “We hope the innovation and creativity exemplified by Hall of Fame members will inspire the next generation to continue our industry’s legacy of productivity, sustainability and growth.”
