The Award recognizes those car wash professionals, operators as well as suppliers, who have made a lasting impact on the professional car wash industry. It is the industry and Association's highest honor. Selection is based upon candidate attributes in the areas of Leadership, Collaboration, Industry Support, Longevity and Innovation.

ICA Car Wash Hall of Fame Nomination Form


The Hall of Fame Award is the highest recognition bestowed upon an individual for his or her contributions to the professional car wash industry. Typically, one or two recipients are identified each year, but there is no requirement that the award be granted every year. Nominations are solicited from the industry and membership, but the winner need not be chosen from those nominations. The award has, and may be, awarded posthumously. The following are used as selection criteria guidelines:


Leadership. The candidate should be widely recognized as a successful leader in their market or field, or have successfully led their organization to a leadership position.

Collaboration. The candidate should have demonstrated a willingness to help others be successful in the car wash business.

Industry Support. The candidate should have served on car wash association boards or committees, or supported industry programs (e.g. philanthropic initiatives).

Longevity. The candidate should have established a “full career” in the car wash business.

Innovation. The candidate should have brought new thinking, ideas or products/processes to the car wash business.
