NOMINATIONS OUTREACH TEMPLATES

Template: Nominations Outreach to Executive

My company is a proud Partner of the (INSERT MARKET) Admin Awards, which is the Administrative Profession’s highest honor and becoming nationally known as “The Academy Awards for Admins.” For a decade now the Admin Awards has been providing long-overdue recognition of Administrative Professionals across the country and will again in 2021, with Admin Awards LIVE!, an unstoppable celebration of Administrative Excellence in nine markets.

To watch a short video of the Good as Gold Celebration, click HERE. To see how Admin Awards LIVE! will work this year, click HERE.

I believe your Administrative Professional, [INSERT NAME], reflects the qualities of the programs candidates and has the potential to advance in the Competition to Finalist  – or even Winner status! To see the kinds of Executives like yourself that have participated in the program please click HERE.

If you are interested in learning more, I would like to have someone from the Admin Awards reach out to you to discuss the best way to go about nominating your Administrative Professional. Thanks to the Admin Awards’ National Sponsors, Southwest Airlines, and Robert Half, there is no fee to nominate! I can also give you access to an upcoming Zoom Info Session if you prefer to learn more that way.

I look forward to your response!

Hello______,

My company is a proud Partner of the (INSERT MARKET) Admin Awards, which is the Administrative Profession’s highest honor and becoming nationally known as “The Academy Awards for Admins.” For a decade now the Admin Awards has been providing long-overdue recognition of Administrative Professionals across the country and will again in 2021, with Admin Awards LIVE!, an unstoppable celebration of Administrative Excellence in nine markets.

The reason for my email is I think you strongly represent the quality of the candidates that have been recognized through this program and I would like to submit what we call a “trigger” nomination. This ensures that your company is made aware of this wonderful awards program and gives the opportunity to recognize those that “do all the work” – Administrative Professionals like you! The system will notify your Supervisor once you are nominated so they can move forward in nominating you for one of the nine award categories.

To watch a short video of the Good as Gold Celebration, click HERE.

I want to be sure that you understand that this nomination is legitimate – don’t trash it! I’ve also copied Judy Champion, a former Admin Awards Winner and Nominations Director for the Admin Awards. Judy is happy to explain the program and its mission in more detail. Note you MUST accept your nomination within 14 days of receiving notification or before the deadline (whichever comes first) in order to remain in the competition which includes inputting your HR contact into the system so it can notify them of the program as well and can garner internal support.

Thank you and enjoy this moment in the spotlight – you deserve it! If you have any questions I am standing by!

Hello______,

My company is a proud Community Partner of the (INSERT MARKET) Admin Awards, which is the Administrative Profession’s highest honor and becoming nationally known as “The Academy Awards for Admins.” For a decade now the Admin Awards has been providing long-overdue recognition of Administrative Professionals across the country and will again in 2021, with Admin Awards LIVE!, an unstoppable virtual celebration of Administrative Excellence in nine markets.

The reason for my email is I recently submitted what we call a “Trigger Nomination” on behalf of (INSERT CANDIDATE’S NAME) so you should receive a notification from the program’s system encouraging you to submit a formal nomination which enables their advancement in the program.

To watch a short video of the Good as Gold Celebration, click HERE.

I’ve also copied Judy Champion, a former winner of The Admin Awards program and an Admin Awards Ambassador who is happy to explain the program and its mission in more detail. She is also happy to help set up your Admin Awards nomination, transcribe your nomination or assist in any way to make this process as easy as possible for you.

Thank you and if you have any questions, I am standing by!

Hello______,

A quick follow up to make sure that you received the email related to the nomination I submitted for Nominee’s Name for the (INSERT MARKET) Admin Awards, which is the Administrative Profession’s highest honor. For a decade now the Admin Awards has been providing long-overdue recognition of Administrative Professionals across the country and will again in 2021, with Admin Awards LIVE!, an unstoppable virtual celebration of Administrative Excellence in nine markets where Watch Parties gather safely to cheer on their Finalists and discover who will win the nine iconic Admin Awards.

If you didn’t receive the email I am referring to, it’s likely in a junk folder! Only with an internal nomination can candidates advance in the competition and the email provides details about how to proceed in nominating (essentially, nominate at https://theadminawards.awardsplatform.com).

To watch a short video of the Good as Gold Celebration, click HERE.

If I can be of further assistance please let me know and I’ve also copied an Admin Awards representative, Judy Champion who can assist. Thanks to the support of the programs National Sponsors, Southwest Airlines, and Robert Half there is no cost to nominate.
