Once a nomination is received the contact information and eligibility for the submission is reviewed to ensure they meet the specified criteria.
Following the submission deadline of February 24, 2017 all nominators will be sent questions related to the award category for which they completed a nomination. Responses to the questions provided will be the basis for determining the award recipient so those nominating should have specific examples prepared.
Someone from the Selection Committee will contact the nominator to set up a time to be interviewed by phone.
If a nominator cannot be reached by phone prior to the deadline for decision the nomination will be disregarded (no exceptions).
