The nomination deadline for the third annual awards program administered by McKnight’s Long-Term Care News and McKnight’s Senior Living ends tonight at 11:59 p.m. The entry fee is $99. 

Eligible for recognition are women working as direct care providers, managers, executives, corporate executives and owners in skilled nursing facilities, as well as those working in independent living, assisted living, memory care and life plan communities. Women who serve the field indirectly, for instance as association staff members, academicians or thought leaders, also are eligible. Individuals working for vendor companies are not eligible.

Women can be nominated in three categories:

  • Hall of Honor for senior-level professionals.
  • Veteran VIPs for candidates with more than 15 years of experience and at a level lower than vice president or its equivalent.
  • Rising Stars for candidates who are 40 or younger or have fewer than 15 years of experience in the profession.

Nominators should be prepared to share detailed information about nominees’ work histories, exceptional achievements and contributions or service, and anything else that the judging panel should consider.

All honorees, including a lifetime achievement award winner, will be celebrated at a virtual awards event in May that also will include continuing education sessions. Additional details about the event will be announced at a later date.

More information about the program and nomination process can be found here.

Past winners and the celebrations around past Women of Distinction events can be seen here.
