2020 Spinnaker Awards

What Are The Spinnaker Awards?

If you’ve attended the Spinnaker Dinner, you know what an honor it is to receive this prestigious award and what a great evening it is for the honoree and his or her family and friends. We are asking our members to help us select our honorees by nominating those businesses or individuals whom you feel are deserving of this year’s Spinnaker Award.

To nominate your choice, just submit via e-mail a brief summary of the accomplishments, awards or achievements that you feel qualify your nominee for this special recognition. You are welcome to nominate in as many – or as few – categories as you like but please do not nominate a business or individual who has already received the award.

A list of prior winners is displayed below. Nominations for the 2020 Spinnaker Awards honorees are due by SEPTEMBER 1, 2019.

Send your nomination via e-mail to director@emacc.org The Spinnaker Awards Dinner will be held Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at the Sheraton, Eatontown, NJ.
