The National Association of Oil Heating Service Managers (NAOHSM) annually recognizes individuals that have either excelled within the NAOHSM organization or within the oil heating industry. Starting at the 2009 annual convention in May, NAOHSM will be presenting its first Oilheat Technician of the Year award.

Each of the 30 NAOHSM chapters is to nominate their best techs. Chapters will be asked to nominate their best techs within a set of guidelines that allow points to be awarded for positive attributes. Using this system, each of the 10 NAOHSM states will present their state’s highest scoring technician as a finalist. In addition, there will be one at-large nominee representing NAOHSM’s National Direct members from states other than the current NAOHSM chapter states.

Chapter nominees should be submitted before April 10. The 11 state finalists will be interviewed by an independent panel of judges via conference call. For more information on this competition, contact Judy Garber at 888-552-0900.
