Do not let this momentous occasion pass you by! Nominate deserving employees by completing the form at the bottom of this page before the April 12, 2024, deadline.

Step 1:

Review the following categories for nomination of your employee. Please nominate your employee in the category that reflects their contributions in 2023. Each nominee MUST be an employee of an SFMA member company.

1. Administrative (e.g., General Administration, Finance, Marketing, Sales, etc.)

Step 2:

Complete the below nomination form. Each nominee will be formally recognized at the Recognition of Excellence Ceremony in addition to the winners and runners-up being announced that evening. A critical component of the nomination form are the two questions on the form that address the employee’s contributions to the company in 2023 and their value to the company. Please see below for the nomination form for guidance on what to include for each of these two criteria.

Step 3:

If you have it handy, please email a headshot of your nominee to Eve Crowley at ecrowley@sfma.org. As a nominator, you may be contacted by the SFMA with any other information needed prior to the Ceremony.

Step 4:

After the nomination period closes, volunteer judges will read each application in each category. The judging will be conducted on a blind-scoring basis based on the two questions you answered and the criterion listed under each question. The judges rely on the responses and the details to score each nominee in each category. The winners and runners-up in each category will be unveiled at the ceremony in June 2024.
