We highly encourage you to type your responses first in a Microsoft Word document and then copy/paste them into this form. This will ensure that your work will not be lost in the event the nomination form mistakenly closes. The form is not able to save your responses for returning to at a later date.

Nominations are kept on file and will be considered for the year submitted plus two (2) years. After that time period, if you would like a woman who has not previously been chosen to again be considered for a Women of Influence award, please re-submit their nomination with updated and/or additional information. You are also welcome to submit additional information to a previous nomination that is still within the 2-year consideration period.
