The Automotive Industries Association (AIA) of Canada is looking to the aftermarket for nominees to be considered to receive one of 38 Diamond Jubilee Medals.
The association is one of only 11 professional economic groups in Canada invited to nominate individuals who do outstanding work to better the lives of those around them and make our country stronger. AIA Canada received 38 Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medals to deserving individuals from the industry, and invites members to nominate those they deem “exceptional Canadians” to receive this honour.
“This is an incredible honour bestowed upon AIA Canada and the automotive aftermarket Industry by the Governor General of Canada. Our industry is filled with people who give their time and effort to causes dear to their hearts,” states AIA Canada President Marc Brazeau. “I was honoured to attend the Inaugural Presentation of the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond on February 6th, 2012 at Rideau Hall and witness 60 Canadians from across the country and various walks of life receive this prestigious medal from Governor General David Johnston and Prime Minister Stephen Harper.”
To ensure that the awarding of this national honour is done in a broad and inclusive manner, governmental and non-governmental partner organizations, such as AIA Canada, have been identified to nominate candidates from their community or organization.
Members may forward suggestions for nominations to AIA president Marc.Brazeau@aiacanada.com with the subject line Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal Nomination before March 30th, 2012.
