NALFA Annual LAMMY Awards Winners Announced
The North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) has announced the winners of the 2013 LAMMY Awards, which are given annually to recognize both companies and individuals for excellence in a number of categories in the laminate flooring industry.
“These winners exemplify the hard work, commitment and creativity that makes our industry thrive,” says Bill Dearing, president of NALFA. “The LAMMY Awards offer a fantastic opportunity for NALFA to formally recognize these outstanding professionals for their achievements and honor them among their peers.”
The NALFA Board of Directors anonymously nominates individuals and organizations for each award category. The nominees are compiled, listed on ballots and sent for voting to NALFA members. They are also sent to the editors of Floor Covering Installer, Floor Covering News, Floor Covering Weekly, Floor Focus, National Floor Trends and ProInstaller Magazine. NALFA presented the first LAMMY Awards in 2007.
