Nominations for this award open in July of each year. The nominees go through a selection process to choose the finalists. Finalists are then invited to a private event where they are introduced to the other finalists and go through an interview process. The winner is then selected by a panel of judges and presented at our Annual Movers & Shakers Gala.
