Each year RPCN presents awards to both members and non-members who have contributed so much to our organization and to our members' growth. Each year, these awards are presented at a dinner designated as the "Wall of Fame" Awards Gala.
You need not be a member of RPCN to nominate a candidate. You may nominate anyone who you feel has contributed to the economic growth or development of the greater Rochester Area. You just have to tell a good story about why your candidate for a particular category deserves the award. You may supply any documentation or references to articles or information sources to support your recommendation. You can nominate more than one person in one or more of the categories. Simply fill out a separate form for each nominee.
Below are the five current categories of awards with a description of each.
Identify the person you judge to have influenced you the most in your practice, job or business. It could be a role model, an author, one of your clients, a colleague or a consultant or coach that you hired.
