The Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce is accepting applications for 2017 Man and Woman of the Year.
It’s that time of year – the Chamber is asking for nominations for Man and Woman of the Year. The Man and Woman of the Year award are given to the lucky winners at our Annual Banquet, which date has been set for Tuesday, January 30, 2018, on the Sonic Floor of the Dorothy Garrett Coliseum. Recipients of the 2016 Award respectfully were Raul Marquez, Sr. and Vicki Stewart.
Criteria for Selection
The procedure for nominating and selecting the Man and Woman of the Year shall be as follows:
? There must be a nominator who will submit a nomination in writing on a form provided and approved by the selection committee to include the relevant information about the nominee. To prevent the process from being a “popularity contest,” the committee will be charged to base their decision on the information provided in the nomination submitted, not on the personal knowledge that they might or might not have of the nominee.
? The nominator shall submit their name, address, and phone number in case the selection committee should need additional information.
? The nominee does not have to be a member of the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce, but the nominator must be a member in good standing.
? The selection will be made on the basis of all around contributions to the community, not just for extraordinary performance in the individual’s business or employment. The nominee should have a consistent track record of accomplishments rather than being honored for a single act of merit; although a single contribution or achievement is not ruled out if it is of sufficient importance.
? The term “community” as used above should be taken to relate to the “area” served by the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce, which is Howard County.
? Those currently holding a political office should not be eligible for nomination.
To receive an application, contact Debbye ValVerde or Nancy Davenport, at 263-7641.
Deadline to turn in your nomination is December 13, 2017, at 5 PM.
