NAE's extensive award program advances excellence in American Free Enterprise in the simplest, most effective way. It identifies and illuminates businesses and individuals that lead free enterprise by excelling beyond the crowd. Today, it is more important than ever to recognize and promote trail-blazing, innovative, and winning leaders; and to present them to the public as what they are: the root of the American Dream. Similarly, the NAE Preceptor Awards recognize those researchers and educators who make outstanding contributions to American Free Enterprise and literature in and out of the classroom.
NAE's awards program is a forum through which the American mid-market's best and brightest can shine. With its vision for continuous improvement, NAE structures its awards to provide shining examples of the infinite value and opportunity in American Free Enterprise today, not only to its members but to the entire community.
Ten finalists in each category will be nominated nationally, all finalists will be recognized, with the top Award Winner in each category receiving a NAE Preceptor of the Year Award. All finalists will be recognized at the Celebrate Excellence Forum.
