PAL Card holders across five continents win prizes
Prizes ranged from trips to the IPAF Summit to t-shirts and caps
More than 460 PAL Card holders across five continents have won prizes in IPAF’s “Verify and Win” free prize draw celebrating the one millionth PAL Card (Powered Access Licence) ever issued.
Winners from countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Ireland, Malaysia, the Netherlands, Turkey, UAE, UK and USA received prizes ranging from trips to the IPAF Summit and rental market reports, to T-shirts, hi viz jackets, caps, pens and clipboards. The draw was open to any of the more than half a million valid PAL Card holders who verified their PAL Card.
The five winners of trips to the IPAF Summit and International Awards for Powered Access (IAPAs) this March in Washington, DC, USA, are: Natalie Bird, Reanne Graver, Robert-Jan Kroes, Colin Simpson and Richard Willis.
Note: Robert-Jan Kroes was added to the list of winners on 11.02.2015 after one of the previously announced winners opted to receive one of the other prizes instead.
Another ten winners received IPAF Powered Access Rental Market Reports worth around €1,000 each.
“Congratulations to these five PAL Card holders! They will be joining us to hear world-class speakers at the IPAF Summit and be part of the industry’s annual celebration of excellence,” said Tim Whiteman, IPAF CEO. “These prizes celebrate the extraordinary international success of IPAF’s voluntary MEWP operator training programme which is administered by the industry’s not-for-profit trade association – a big thank-you to everybody who has contributed to its success over the years.”
Details on the IPAF Summit and IAPAs are at www.iapa-summit.info.
The draw was made by extracting the winners from a list of entrants in a random sequence using software supplied by IPAF’s IT partners Furness Internet and audited by software specialists Mercurytide. The names of the five principal winners were generated by Tony Whiteway, a partner with IPAF’s auditors CLB Coopers, who also oversaw the drawing of the other names and certified the impartiality of the entire process.
The validity of a PAL Card can be checked by using the online verification tool.
