NDA’s Lifetime Achievement Award
The Lifetime Achievement Award is presented to a member selected for their exceptional service to NDA and the industry. The award honors members for their leadership and commitment to NDA’s organizational vision and mission, and pays tribute to the individual’s commitment to the betterment of their community, the company they worked for and the Demolition industry as a whole.
NDA's Hall of Fame Awards
The National Demolition Association established the National Demolition Association Hall of Fame Program to recognize and honor elite industry leaders whose commitment, ingenuity, and devotion have significantly impacted the demolition industry and our member companies. While the Lifetime Achievement Award focuses on the body of work of a member in the industry over the course of a lifetime, the Hall of Fame award is designed to honor professionals who have contributed significantly to the profession, but are not necessarily eligible for the Lifetime Achievement Award.
Inductees will be celebrated during the Annual Convention and Expo as well as in NDA membership and news communications. Eligible nominators include NDA member companies in good standing, the NDA Awards Committee, or the NDA Board of Directors. Nominee must be a current or past employee of an NDA member company. Candidates may be nominated posthumously.

Excellence in Demolition Awards are the industry’s prestigious recognition program which honors NDA members who have demonstrated significant community involvement in 2022/2023. The Awards are presented annually to companies that have made a significant "quality of life" impact on their community.
