1 EASY STEP TO NOMINATING AN OUTSTANDING INDIVIDUAL OR BUSINESS:

To submit a nomination online, complete and submit the data form below. 

After the nomination, the EBE Hall of Fame will then notify the nominee of their nomination for the 2019 Entrepreneurial & Business Excellence Hall of Fame. The nominee has the option to accept or decline the nomination. 

 

WHAT CAN THE NOMINEE EXPECT?

  1. If the nominee accepts his/her nomination, an interview will be arranged with the nominee and a member of the EBE Hall of Fame. At the interview, the committee member will ask a specific series of questions.

  2. An Executive Summary of the nominee’s interview will be created by the EBE Hall of Fame and a financial overview will be looked over by retired CPA, Larry Davenport. This process ensures the credibility and stability of the nominated business, and all information acquired during the process is held in strictest confidence and destroyed following the selection process.

  3. The Entrepreneurial & Business Excellence Hall of Fame Independent Judges Panel will review the Executive Summaries and financial information (to be approved by the nominee) of all 2019 nominees and then make their selections in June. Final determination of the number of honorees will be the decision of the judging panel.

Honorees will be announced in July and will then be formally inducted into the Entrepreneurial & Business Hall of Fame at the 2019 EBE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Thursday, November 14th, 2019.

At that Ceremony, the Nominees will be honored and take their place along side the dynamic over 200 current members of the EBE Hall of Fame.
