NEMA Announces New Award to Recognize Business Innovation

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), Rosslyn, Va., is soliciting nominations for its inaugural Business Innovation Council (BIC) Illuminations Award to recognize a small- to medium-sized (SME) NEMA company.

The award will be made at the association’s annual meeting in Washington, D.C., in November and will showcase a company that demonstrates outstanding leadership, service, entrepreneurial inventiveness, and other criteria established by the BIC Advisory Committee. In addition to being a NEMA member company in good standing, a nominee must be an SME manufacturer with annual reported in NEMA scope sales of $50 million or less. Full criteria are listed on NEMA’s members-only BIC website.

Kevin Cosgriff, NEMA’s president and CEO, said in the press release announcing the award, “The BIC Illuminations Award will highlight companies that identify challenges faced by the electroindustry as a whole, as well as driving solutions. So in honoring an outstanding SME member, we recognize not only the entrepreneurial spirit that was behind NEMA’s founding nearly 90 years ago, but also the force that will carry NEMA into the future.”

The award will be presented at the awards luncheon held in conjunction with NEMA’s 89th Annual Membership Meeting November 6, 2015, in Washington, D.C., at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel.
