The Plastics Academy is seeking nominations for posthumous members to the Plastics Hall of Fame. Nominations are being accepted from March 1 through Oct. 30.
Nominations are for deceased individuals who have a strong record of consistent dedication and extraordinary accomplishments, and who have contributed to the stature and growth of the plastics industry, said Jay Gardiner, president of the Plastics Academy, which administers the Plastics Hall of Fame.
The plastics industry today continues to grow and develop through innovation and we can thank the Hall of Fame members who came before us for their leadership by example.
Criteria for nomination and an e-mail form can be found at www.plasticsacademy.org. Forms also can be requested by contacting Susan Douglas at the Society of the Plastics Industry Inc. in Washington at [email protected] industry.org or 202-974-5224.
All nominations will be screened by the officers and board of directors of the Plastics Academy. Then, a committee of Plastics Hall of Fame members will select up to five nominees for induction into the hall during a ceremony planned for 2011.
We welcome nominations from any interested party, and we have made our nomination process user-friendly, said Plastics Academy Chairman John Kretzschmar.
SPI President and CEO Bill Carteaux called induction to the hall unquestionably the greatest honor that the Plastics Academy could bestow.
