Recognize your team members and peers for their commitment to entrepreneurship at the NACCE conference.
In our field, many good deeds go unnoticed. Some entrepreneurship educational leaders are not recognized for their hard work and accomplishments. In the communities our members serve, there are inspiring entrepreneurs who are building new ventures and need to be sought out and recognized. Everyone nominated for a NACCE Impact Award will be honored during a special session at the 11th Annual Conference.
We need your help in selecting those individuals who deserve recognition for their hard work through our annual awards program. We have three categories celebrating those who are committed to entrepreneurship on our campuses and in our communities.
The three categories are:
- Impact Awards
These awards are ways to recognize many different individuals at your community college who are committed to entrepreneurship and who are making a difference for student and community entrepreneurs and small business owners. Faculty members, staff members and entrepreneurship center staff are all eligible. Everyone nominated for a NACCE Impact Award will be honored during a special session at the 11th Annual Conference.
- Alumni Entrepreneur Award
At times, community colleges have challenges in keeping up with their alumni. This award serves as a tool to be used in searching out your successful alumni entrepreneurs and having them honored with a national audience. Let this serve to strengthen the bond with the entrepreneur in your community who got their start at your doors. The recipients of this award will be honored during a special session at the 11th Annual Conference.
- Entrepreneurial President
As a community college president, you set the tone for the entire institution, and as a NACCE member, you "get” that an entrepreneurial culture is a critical factor in the success of that college. A President that can move that culture to embrace the need for entrepreneurship education through all the colleges’ offerings is a gem indeed. Have you seen this mindset – and action – in one of your presidential peers? If so, please nominate him/her for this award so that we may give him/her the recognition they deserve with a national audience.
