Call for 2012 Hall of Fame Nominations

Dec 1st, 2011 | By | Category: Spotlight

Each year, the International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum (ITRHFM) recognizes individuals who have made substantial contributions to the towing and recovery industry. The tradition started in 1986 when the towing and recovery industry realized it was time to display the roots of the profession. Industry professionals came together and selected individuals who made a difference. To honor those chosen few, the Friends of Towing (now ITRHFM) dedicated an entire section of the museum’s walls for portraits of the inductees. Each September a new class is inducted.

To nominate an individual for induction into the International Towing & Recovery Hall of Fame and Museum, you must be a member (regular member or higher) of the museum. The nomination form for the 2012 class of inductees can be downloaded here. Completed nomination forms can be mailed to the post office box address located at the bottom of the application: ITRHFM, PO Box 23283, Chattanooga, TN 37422.
