ATA seeking H. Chester Webb Award nominations

A highlight of the Alabama Trucking Association’s Annual Convention is the presentation of the H. Chester Webb Award for Distinguished Service which recognizes the leadership and community involvement by an individual of the state’s trucking industry. Criteria are based upon the nominee’s record of service in three categories: service to the industry, to the Alabama Trucking Association, and to their local community.

The purpose of the Award is to recognize such members’ leadership and encourage public service by members of the highway transportation industry. Named for its donor, the Webb Award characterizes the service and leadership of a man well known and beloved throughout Alabama and national transportation circles for his own dedication to industry advancement and public service.

Nominations are now being accepted from any ATA member. Please nominate a person you believe best exemplifies the attributes described above. A panel of prior award recipients will determine the winner, and that individual will be announced during ATA’s Annual Convention’s Chairman’s Dinner & Awards Banquet on Saturday, April 25.

The Webb Award has been given to 53 individuals since its creation in 1958. Recent winners include Tom McLeod (2016); Bill Ward (2017), Greg Brown (2018), and Kimble Coaker (2019).

An official nominating form is available here. Email your nomination to Brandie Norcross at or fax to 334-262-6504 by close of business Tuesday, April 3, 2020.
