UNM’s Anderson Schools of Management Seeking Nominations to Hall of Fame

January 9, 2004

The Robert O. Anderson Schools of Management at The University of New Mexico is seeking nominations for alumni to be inducted into its Hall of Fame.

Outstanding alumni who have distinguished themselves in their professions and have made significant contributions to their communities may be nominated. Those selected will be honored at a special recognition dinner later this spring. This event is The Schools’ largest friend- and fund-raiser, benefiting student scholarships, faculty research and student career placement activities. This year the Schools will also be recognizing three outstanding young alumni. These are alumni who have distinguished themselves in the short time since graduating from The Anderson Schools and are the kind of individuals who may be future Hall of Fame inductees.

“This program is the long-standing way we recognize those individuals who have made their mark since earning their degree at The Anderson Schools,” said Dean Howard Smith. “Each year, we see the incredible success stories of our graduates through this nomination process and we appreciate the important community support this program generates.”

The deadline for receiving nominations for both the Hall of Fame and the Young Alumni award is Friday, January 30. To nominate an outstanding Anderson alum, simply send their name, title, affiliation and address to: The Anderson Schools of Management Development Office, 1 University of New Mexico, MSC05 3090, Albuquerque, NM 87131. Nominations are also accepted by telephone at 505-277-0880 and via email at mchale@mgt.unm.edu.

Awards will be presented at the 15th Annual Hall of Fame Dinner, scheduled for May 6 at the Sheraton Old Town. Cocktails will begin at 6:00 p.m., followed by the dinner at 7:00 p.m.

It is not too early to make reservations for this year’s Hall of Fame dinner. Corporate Table sponsorships are $600 and include a table of ten. The cost for individual tickets is $75.
