Nominations Invited For FEI Hall of Fame

As recently announced, FEI is currently accepting nominations for the Class of 2011 for the FEI Hall of Fame. As noted on the Hall of Fame website, http://www.feihall.org/: "The FEI Hall of Fame provides acknowledgment to senior financial executives who have epitomized the integrity, leadership and performance of the most exemplary financial professionals throughout their careers and in doing so, have made significant contributions to the betterment of their respective organizations and to the financial profession as a whole."

Nominations may be made by FEI members and nonmembers who register in the nomination section of the Hall of Fame website.

Eligibility requirements for nominees are as follows: "Nominees should have a career history of strong leadership and innovation, demonstrated organizational performance and a reputation for acting with integrity and ethical behavior.

"Inductees will be in the later stages of their careers or retired. Eligible inductees would be individuals who have served as senior financial executives, at some point in their careers, in public, private or non-profit organizations and, in that role or others, have significantly impacted their organizations, industry or society at large.

"Both members and nonmembers of FEI are eligible for nomination. Longstanding and distinguished FEI leadership is honored through FEI’s Distinguished Service Award and while commendable, it should not be the major contributing factor for determining admission to the Hall of Fame."

Readers of this blog will recognize many of the names of past inductees, for their leadership role in the finance profession, in corporate, non-profit, and public service.

Nomination Deadline: May 26
The deadline for nominations to be submitted for the 6th annual FEI Hall of Fame is May 26. Additional information, including Hall of Fame FAQs, can be found on http://www.feihall.org/.
