The George Lanser Memorial Award

As a part of the 50th Anniversary celebration for the Wisconsin Towing Association, we would like to once again present the George Lanser Memorial Award. The award honors an individual for distinguished and dedicated service to the Association and Wisconsin’s towing and recovery industry.

To date there have four recipients: Don Rolling, Marvin Platt, Bill Tomlinson and Mike DeHaan. Thus, the person receiving this award will find themselves in rarefied air. The award will be presented at the annual convention during the Saturday evening awards banquet.

Nominations are now open and we hope you might consider nominating someone you feel truly deserves this prestigious award. The criteria for the nominees is somewhat general, however they must have shown a dedication to both the Association as well as the towing industry. Other criteria such as community service, volunteer work and anything else of value outside the Association and industry will be considered.

Nominations are due no later than May 15, 2017. To nominate an individual, please fill out the form below and include as much information as possible.
