Home News NALFA announces nominees for 2012 Lammy Awards

The North American Laminate Flooring Association (NALFA) congratulates the nominees for the 2012 Lammy Awards. NALFA presents the Lammy awards annually to companies and individuals who have demonstrated exceptional contributions to the laminate flooring industry.

NALFA’s board of directors anonymously nominates individuals and organizations for each category. NALFA members, as well as the editors of Floor Covering Installer, Floor Covering News, Floor Covering Weekly, Floor Focus and National Floor Trends, then vote for the winners. The first Lammy Awards were presented in 2007.

“We wanted a way to officially recognize excellence in this field, so we developed the LammyAwards,” says Bill Dearing, president of NALFA. “Recipients feel The Lammy Awards are a great honor, and we continue the tradition as a great way for NALFA to formally recognize companies and individuals for their efforts within our industry.”

Winners will be announced at Surfaces in Las Vegas, Nev., in January 2013.
