You can play a big role in helping the American Rental Association (ARA) recognize rental operators, as well as manufacturers and suppliers, who are the industry’s most valuable players — those who have gone above and beyond to help the equipment and event rental community thrive for all who depend upon it for their livelihood.
All it takes is a nomination from you. Review the award descriptions and criteria below. Then submit your nomination(s) at ARArental.org/Industry-Awards by Aug. 11. All recipients selected will be honored at the Industry Awards Lunch during The ARA Show™ 2024 in New Orleans.
The Rental Hall of Fame is the industry’s most prestigious award. This award, open to all ARA general, associate and independent manufacturing representative (IMR) members (living or deceased), recognizes an individual who has made a significant and positive impact on the rental industry at the national and/or international levels. Nominees will be reviewed on their leadership skills, industry impact, ingenuity, industry stability capabilities and personal commitment to the industry.
These awards recognize ARA general and associate members as well as IMRs who have demonstrated long-term leadership and service to the association, made a significant contribution in a defined area of association service and/or made a significant impact on the association or industry at the national, state or local levels.
