Call for Nominees:
2011 Lifetime Achievement Award

Nominations must be received by April 1, 2011.

Every other year, the American Society of Business Publication Editors recognizes a trade, association, or business publication editor whose commitment to editorial excellence has made them a leader in the industry.

We are encouraging you to nominate a colleague for this industry recognition. Your nominee need not currently hold an editorial position, and may be retired, but the individual must have spent the bulk of his or her career in senior editorial positions.


  1. Significant involvement (25 years or more) with business publications. Nominees need not currently hold editorial positions, and may be retired, but ideally will have spent the bulk of their careers in senior editorial positions or serving the b2b publication industry in some significant way. Nominees need not be members of ASBPE. Past nominees not selected in previous years are encouraged to reapply.
  2. A commitment to editorial excellence. This may be demonstrated by general reputation of their publication(s); industry-related awards (e.g. ASBPE, Neal Awards, Folio:); internal company awards; other forms of recognition or other valid measures of editorial success.
  3. A commitment to the business/professional press. Nominees should be or should have been involved in lending their experience and time to benefit others in the business press. For example, this may be participation in local or national business press or related organizations; corporate or university teaching; mentoring programs; or significant research or publication of articles on business press issues.
  4. A commitment to the industry(ies) nominee’s publication(s) serve. Examples might include committee work with trade or professional associations or standards groups; frequent speaking engagements at industry events; significant research or publication of articles on industry issues; or significant advocacy work with government agencies.

The deadline for nominations is April 1, 2011.
