UNM's Anderson School of Management Foundation is accepting nominations for the 24th annual Hall of Fame and Young Alumni awards. The Hall of Fame celebrates extraordinary men and women alumni who have made significant contributions to the Anderson School and the business community.

The Young Alumni awards recognize outstanding Anderson graduates 40 years old or younger who have distinguished themselves in the short time since earning their degree. Prospective alumni candidates must have demonstrated a commitment to continuing education and community service matched by their commitment to professional success.

To nominate an Anderson alumnus in either category go to: Anderson Hall of Fame Nominations.

Nominees will be contacted and asked to provide a professional vitae or resume and additional supportive material. The Advancement Committee of the Anderson School of Management Foundation reviews all nominee submissions and determines whether they meet the required criteria. Federal and State elected or appointed officials (or persons actively seeking these offices) are ineligible for consideration for this award as they may be actively involved in funding decisions affecting the University. They become eligible after their public term has ended. All other officials with no conflict of interest or direct business with UNM are eligible for this award. A panel of foundation board members and past honorees will make the final selections.

The deadline for nominations is Monday, Sept. 17, 2012. The Hall of Fame awards banquet will be held on Thursday, March 7, 2013. For more information, contact Sara Lucero at (505) 277-6413.
