NRG RECOGNITION AWARDS



MVPA Roll of Honor
This award is intended to give special recognition to those individuals, or organizations, that have made outstanding national or international contributions to serving the interests of our members, and, in increasing public awareness of the importance of restoring and preserving historical military vehicles for our future heritage.
Criteria for eligibility to receive the award are varied. They include extensive published contributions on historical military vehicles; the establishment of major military vehicle museums or collections, which encourage public visitation and access to information on vehicle restoration; or other, widely recognized services, which assist our members in their vehicle restorations, preservation or use.
Any person(s) living or deceased is eligible to receive the award with the exception of those who are currently serving on the MVPA Board of Directors in any elected, appointed, or other official capacity. The award is not to be considered as an annual requirement of the MVPA, nor is there any restriction on the number of awards that may be presented in any given year.
The MVPA Awards Committee will be chaired by a member of the Board, appointed by the President, and will consist of three (3) additional members, selected by the chairperson and approved by the Board. The Awards Committee may itself select inductees and will also accept recommendations from the MVPA membership. The Awards Committee presents their inductee recommendations for Board approval at the winter meeting. The final inductees will be announced at the MVPA Convention Awards Banquet at which time a certificate will be presented. The winners will be listed in Supply Line as part of the convention coverage following the event.
