MACPS 2020 CPS Hall of Fame Inductees

The Manufacturers Alliance for Child Passenger Safety (MACPS) recently announced the 2020 National Child Passenger Safety (CPS) Hall of Fame Inductees. The MACPS honors these individuals as they are recognized and remembered for the indelible impressions they have left on the safety of their community and/or the nation. Hall of Fame CPS advocates come from all walks of life:  vehicle manufacturers, car seat manufactures, injury prevention programs, government agencies, first responders and even your neighbor who has a passion for child safety. They are recommended by members of the CPS community for their leadership in their field of design, manufacturing, education and/or advocacy.

“The Hall of Fame sub-committee reviewed an unprecedented number of applicants this year.  We were astounded by the level of participation nationwide and the number of individuals who all deserved a place on this list”, said Vera Fullaway, MACPS Chair. “It was an honor to lead this committee once again this year.  I am so proud of all of the inductees and the accomplishments they have made and continue to make in this industry,” noted Robert Wall, Hall of Fame Chair.

The MACPS is a group of car seat and vehicle manufacturers who work cooperatively to educate, support CPS technicians and the advocacy community, and ultimately focus on the safety of children. By working together the MACPS will reinforce to consumers and CPSTs nationally that manufacturers are here to support them and their passion for child passenger safety
