NAE First Generation Awards and Council Invitations Completed (Posted September 28, 2011)

The National Association of Entrepreneurship has announced that its National First Generation Committee has completed its selection of 2011 First Generation Entrepreneur of the Year Award Recipients. Award recipients are currently being notified.  Along with this, National First Generation Council invitations are being extended to potential members throughout the country.
“The NAE First Generation program highlights the best of American Business,” says Chris Nolan, NAE Board Member and Franchise Profs CEO.  “The 2011 Award Winners exemplify the best of free enterprise and sets a standard for all entrepreneurs to follow.” 
In 2008 NAE developed a strategic plan to recognize and highlight the significant contributions first-generation entrepreneurs have made to the American Free Enterprise System.  This plan identified the need to seat a council whose purpose is to guide research, connectivity and outreach programs. NAE’s First-Generation Council on Entrepreneurship (NFGC) is being formed to execute that plan. Invitees are being drawn from this year's distinguished list of award winners. 
The National Association of Entrepreneurship is the voice of America's Mid-Market Leaders.  NAE provides essential research, critical content, documentary film production and unparalleled connectivity as well as hosting a variety of events annually.  These events include the Free Enterprise forum, CEO Briefings Circuit, and the NAE Legislative and Technology Summits, just to name a few.  NAE strives to advance the valuable role of free enterprise in the United States.
