NIA’s Premier Industry Manufacturer™ Award

Premier Industry Manufacturer™ Award

With the help of our Associate (Manufacturer) members, NIA has established the Premier Industry Manufacturer™ award. This program recognizes and distinguishes exemplary companies as industry advocates and leaders. Through this program, NIA’s Associate members demonstrate to customers that their company is a recognized leader amongst their peers.

Available exclusively to NIA Associate Member companies, this program was developed to reward the most active manufacturers for their actions. The plan is to continue to develop the program to ensure it provides the most value to NIA’s Associate members and brings recognition from peers and clients.

How It Works

There is no cost to apply to the program, and NIA encourages all Associate (Manufacturer) member companies to apply.

NIA will track points (retroactively to January 1, 2023) for companies who complete the 2023 application. A few of the activities require the individual member company to complete a tracking form in order to receive points for these activities in 2023.

  • Manufacturers earn points for their participation and involvement in NIA, and for being members of regional associations. In most cases you will be able to earn points for things you are already doing (e.g., attending NIA events).
  • Points will accumulate over a calendar year and are available through a variety of opportunities, including many no-cost options.

If you have any questions regarding the program, please call the NIA office at 703-464-6422 or email

Opportunities to Earn Points Include:

  • NIA membership;
  • Becoming a Foundation contributor;
  • Participating in NIA activities;
  • Attending NIA meetings and events;
  • Advertising and sponsorship; and
  • Other industry memberships.
