Tell Us About Someone We Should Honor!

You work with some great people! 

Every year, the Association of Equipment Management Professionals (AEMP) celebrates the dedication, hard work, and professionalism of the skilled technicians that keep both public and private fleets running. This is your opportunity to help AEMP give national recognition to an exceptional equipment technician on your staff - someone we should know!

The AEMP Education Foundation Technician of the Year Award sponsored by John Deere Construction & Forestry is an annual tribute that honors an individual who exemplifies the heavy equipment profession’s best technician. Our goal is two-fold: 

  • Elevate the stature of the career.
  • Bring awareness to the critical issue of the crippling technician shortage found across the entire industry.

Who in your company is a great heavy equipment technician?  Tell us about that technician's commitment to excellence, dedication to professional growth, and willingness to help fellow workers. Does the technician you have in mind display innovative thinking, a pledge to safety, and a professional presence? How has this person earned your respect and recognition? 

Nominees must have at least five years of experience as heavy equipment technicians. Membership in AEMP is not required for the nominator or the nominee, and only one nominee can be submitted from an employer. Finalists will participate in a 30-minute interview during the selection process. 

The 2018 AEMP Technician of the Year Award will be presented at the 36th AEMP Management Conference & Annual Meeting, March 20th-22nd, 2018 in Orlando, Florida. 

The honoree will receive: 

  • A custom-built John Deere toolbox, tools, safety equipment and personalized merchandise as the grand prize.
  • Free airfare and three nights lodging in Orlando for the Management Conference & Annual Meeting.
  • National recognition/feature story in Equipment World Magazine.
  • Feature story in Equipment Manager Magazine.
  • Complementary membership in AEMP for one year.
  • Complementary enrollment in the EMS certificate program & exam.

Six finalist will receive: 

  • Free airfare and three nights lodging in Orlando for the Management Conference & Annual Meeting.
  • John Deere specialty items and personalized merchandise.    

The deadline to submit your nominee for the 

2018 AEMP Education Foundation Technician of the Year Award is November 15.
