Nomination Tips



If you think someone you know has what it takes to #BeElite, let us know! It's easy to nominate an extraordinary leader, but a thoughtful, well-written nomination is essential to help yours stand out from the many we receive. Here are some suggested tips that we hope will help you in crafting your nomination for membership consideration.


  • Tell us who you think is an extraordinary leader and what makes your nominee special. Ask yourself: What makes my nominee unique? What specific accomplishment has he or she achieved that is truly remarkable? What impact has his or her work had on the world? Why should this individual be considered for membership with The Elite 10?
  • Take your time and write from the heart. Remember: What you share - in your own words - is the most important factor in advancing a nomination for further consideration. You can either enter your answers to the essay questions directly on the form, or write them first in a word-processing document and "cut and paste" them into each answer field. Please note the information you provide will be used in accordance with our Privacy Policy.
  • Click "Submit." If your nomination has been successfully transmitted, you'll see a "thank you" message on your screen and be redirected to a confirmation page. And yes, we carefully read each and every nomination that is submitted!
