The David F. Mungenast Sr. Lifetime Achievement Award

During AIADA’s 2007 Annual Meeting & Luncheon in Las Vegas, AIADA President and CEO Cody Lusk honored the late AIADA Chairman and long-time AIADA supporter, Dave Mungenast Sr., by renaming the association’s lifetime achievement award in his honor.

The international nameplate auto industry in America was built and fostered by a number of talented and dedicated men and women.

Today, the industry continues to draw outstanding individuals at every level, from research and design to manufacturing to retail. Twice a year, at our Annual Meeting in the winter and our Washington Summit in the spring, AIADA presents an award to a member of our industry whose work and involvement is truly exceptional. Winners are nominated by their peers and selected by AIADA’s Board for recognition of their contributions.
