Diamond Paving Commendation Instructions

Diamond Paving Commendation



The Diamond Paving Commendation is made to a specific company district/regional office based at one location. For companies having multiple offices or locations for paving operations, each office or location must submit its own Paving Diamond Commendation application and qualify on its own merits.

In order for the company district/regional office to be recognized at NAPA’s Annual Meeting, nominations must be completed by no later than October 31.  

Participation and renewal
Participation is voluntary and is on an annual basis. Each company district/regional office may be submitted for the commendation every year, at the company’s option.

The cost of participation is $400 per company district/regional office per year.

Possible disqualification
Some questions on the self-assessment deal with aspects of company district/regional office operations that are felt to be crucial. A “No” answer to any such question is treated as automatic disqualification.
