Tom Bruhn Innovative Service Award
One individual nominated for the Outstanding Contribution to MESA Awards will be chosen to receive the Tom Bruhn Innovative Service Award. This person must have not only demonstrated both hard work and dedication in furthering the MESA vision, but gone above and beyond for MESA to develop innovative new ways to serve MESA, to further the MESA mission, and to help MESA serve the entire manufacturing community. Tom Bruhn was a long-time MESA member who went above and beyond to further the MESA mission and served the manufacturing community as a whole. He passed away in 2018.
There may be several Outstanding Contribution to MESA Award winners each year, however, there will be only one Tom Bruhn Innovative Service Award winner annually. MESA reserves the right to not award a Tom Bruhn Innovative Service Award for any given year if no one applicant merited the award.
