Mark your calendar!  Please join us for the celebration on Wednesday, November 29th, 2023.  Time and location information will be forthcoming.

For nominations, please consider the following ideas to strengthen the nomination:

  • Collaborate with others – ask others to work on the nomination with you.
  • Go into detail about the nominees’ contributions. 
  • Site examples to help explain the “how” or “why” of your statements.
  • Provide measurable metrics when numbers/ranges are added to nominations it is more tangible than descriptive words.

For example, to say that the nominee streamlined a process is a good start. A stronger declaration would be to say how that benefited others – like the streamlined process saved a certain amount of money/time/resources/etc. Adding feedback from others who benefited from the changed process would make the statement even more robust. See the nominator guidance and sample nominations below.
