Nominate

How It Works

Nominations should describe how the business, not-for-profit organization or individual demonstrates business excellence and the highest standards of ethical conduct.

An independent volunteer screening committee will evaluate all nominations received to establish the 30 final nominees.  Those 30 nominees will be forwarded to UNM Anderson School of Management for student research.

Nominees and Nominators MUST be willing to be interviewed by UNM Anderson School student teams.

Questions may be directed to samaritan@samaritancc.com or 505-842-5300 ext 206.
