Judging for the AEM Hall of Fame has closed for 2013. This year’s inductees will be announced at the 2013 AEM Hall of Fame celebration presented at the Annual Conference of the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) on November 5, 2013 in Orlando, Florida.
The AEM Hall of Fame honors those who have made a difference in our quality of life and whose innovations, ideas, and leadership have contributed significantly to the growth and strength of the off-road equipment industry. The 2013 inductees will join an illustrious list of more than 40 industry leaders.
AEM thanks the judges for lending their time and expertise to help AEM recognize industry leaders. Each year the judges’ industry knowledge contributes to the program’s success and that holds true in 2013. Judges for the AEM Hall of Fame include industry experts from the agriculture and construction sectors. Visit the AEM Hall of Fame website to view photos and biographies of the judges.
AEM Hall of Fame nominees are judged on five guiding principles crucial to the health of the off-road equipment manufacturing industry: innovation, industry contributions, leadership, corporate citizenship/social responsibility and sustainability.
The AEM Hall of Fame celebration is an integral component of the conference’s grand finale, which includes a reception, dinner and entertainment by The Guess Who.
