Nominate a 2018 Director of the Year!

Please consider the directors with whom you serve and nominate the highest achievers among the group. You are not limited to a single nominee if you sit on numerous boards, but please only nominate the single highest performer on each board in which you sit.

Nominee Qualifications:

  • Nominees may be from any industry
  • Nominees must be a resident of the San Diego area or serve on a board of a company
    headquartered in San Diego
  • Awards are based on director’s recent achievements (except for the Lifetime Achievement award)

Please consider the nominee’s accomplishments that led to your decision to nominate him or her, and — in as much detail as possible — tell us about the nominee’s specific outstanding performance in the boardroom or behind the scenes.

Review the complete list of Category Descriptions and Past Honorees, and feel free to contact Corporate Directors Forum with any questions.  Nominations must be submitted by Friday, May 11, 2018.
