When will nominations for the Manufacturing and Technology Award open and what is the deadline?

Nominations will open June 30, 2017. Nomination deadline is August 4, 2017.

Can I save the nomination or application forms while I’m working on them?

Unfortunately you cannot at the moment, but we’re working to fix that. In the meantime, we suggest either filling out the forms on a separate sheet of paper first or be prepared to spend some time on the forms.

Who are the judges and what are they looking for when selecting the Manufacturing and Technology Award Winners?

A panel of judges consisting of industry professionals educators, and representatives from the Rochester Technology & Manufacturing Association and RBJ’s editorial team select the Manufacturing and Technology Award finalists and winners. It is essential that the candidate meet the requirements outlined for the specific category they are being nominated for. It is helpful to have at least one letter of recommendation or testimonial from someone that can speak to the candidate or company’s achievements.

Should I have a letter of recommendation sent?

Letters of recommendation or a narrative are required to be considered for the CEO of the Year Award. Letters of recommendation, testimonials, and relevant supporting documents are strongly recommended for all other categories.  All supporting documentation can be emailed to events@rbj.net. The document will be paired to your application when it is received.
