Every member of NASTC has a best driver. We want to know who he or she is. It is very important for you to recognize your drivers for the hard work they do and let them know how much they are appreciated.
Is Your Company Proud of the Safe, Quality People You Employ?
By nominating your best for the NASTC Drivers of the Year Award you are sending a great message not only to that individual but also to all your other employees, customers and the public that your company is proud of the safe, quality people you employ.
We are big proponents of incentive and award programs and know many of you are also. Regardless of how much time you spend recognizing your personnel internally, it just isn't the same as nominating a driver for "National Recognition."
What Does a Best Driver Nominee Receive?
Every nominee will receive a personal letter of appreciation and certificate congratulating him or her on being selected by you for recognition. Finalists will be invited to attend our Annual Conference in Nashville in November along with their spouse or a guest.
Last year our finalists received $100.00 cash, jackets, hotel accomodations provided by NASTC, commemorative Driver of the Year plaques, and an array of Driver of the Year gifts provided by NASTC and our affiliate vendors valued at over $1,500. In addition, the Drivers of the Year spend Friday evening at one of Nashville's premier locations where entertainment is provided. Finally, the drivers and their companies are honored at an award ceremony at the NASTC Driver of the Year banquet. The drivers and their companies are given their commemorative plaques and gifts, as well as honored for their distinguished accomplishments within the transportation industry.
At the awards banquet, one was selected by random drawing to be the captain of our Team 2015 and was awarded $1,000.00 in cash. This is one of the best things we do. Please send in your nomination today.
What is the Best Driver Award Criteria?
A member attending the seminar asked about the criteria used for selecting the NASTC Drivers of the Year. He was concerned that since his company was fairly young that his nomination would not have the same opportunity to win as those of more established companies. This is not accurate.
Finalists are selected for the award based on several factors, but each and every one that is nominated is a winner as far as we’re concerned. The fact that you have selected your best for national recognition makes him or her a winner. The nomination process does not cost you anything. If your driver is selected as a finalist, however, we will expect you to go to the expense of getting them to Nashville for the Fall Conference and come with them. It will be some of the best money you ever spend on your drivers.
The deadline for submitting your candidate is September 15th.
Remember that everyone wins by participating in this program.
