Nominating a Peer

  • ​Nominee name and contact information
  • Nominator and contact information
  • A concise but complete statement of why the nominator believes the nominee meets the criteria for the award and, if relevant, why the nominee is singularly qualified to receive it in the current award year.
  • The nominator should indicate whether he or she has a business and/or personal relationship to the nominee (such a relationship does not preclude the nomination but should be disclosed for reasons of transparency).​

A nomination may be submitted jointly by more than one member if desired. The nominee will then be contacted by a staff member to confirm the nomination is accepted.

Self Nominations

Candidates do not have to be nominated by others. Self-nominations are welcome and should include the following information:

  • Candidate name and contact information
  • A concise but complete statement of why the candidate believes they meet the criteria for the award and, if relevant, why the candidate is singularly qualified to receive it in the current award year.
