Teams can be nominated by CMAA members, other than by direct members of the team. Other CMAA members employed by organizations represented in the nominated teams can submit nominations. Teams including members of the Board of Directors or Board of Governors cannot be nominated.
The Selection Committee consists of members of CMAA’s Executive Committee. If an Executive Committee member is employed by an organization that employs members of a nominated team, they will be excused from any and all discussions pertaining to this award. After careful consideration and deliberation, the Selection Committee will provide CMAA’s Chair and President & CEO with a recommendation. Upon selection, CMAA will notify the recipient of the award and the chosen team will be honored at CMAA’s National Conference in the fall.
