Tech Valley Business Hall of Fame
The Tech Valley Business Hall of Fame is a special evening that celebrates the accomplishments of remarkable members of the local community. The careers and community contributions of these "Champions of Free Enterprise" personify the ideals of Junior Achievement and are emblematic of the lessons taught by our programs.
Induction into the Tech Valley Business Hall of Fame is a preeminent business award in this region. As such, the honorees chosen to receive the award should not only meet the high standards established for the honor, but should themselves be a sign of the quality of the award. The honorees that are chosen will be part of an illustrious group, living and deceased, who are noted not only for their leadership in enhancing free enterprise but also for their contributions to the community.
Since the event is co-sponsored by the Center for Economic Growth and Junior Achievement of Northeastern New York, Inc., whose prime audience is youth, the honorees must also be outstanding role models for the students who learn about the values of free enterprise in Junior Achievement’s in-school and after-school programs, and youth in general who will be motivated, inspired and encouraged by the example set by these “Champions of Free Enterprise”.
If you are interested in nominating an outstanding community leader for consideration you can complete the nomination form. When considering possible nominees you should note the criteria upon which they are selected. Once nominated, a candidate will remain on the list for consideration each year.
Come out to the Albany Marriott and join us as we celebrate the induction of three additional exceptional business leaders into the Tech Valley Business Hall of Fame. Those selected for induction by the current electorate in 2016 are: Michael J. Castellana, President & CEO, SEFCU; E. Stewart Jones, Jr., Partner, E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy; and posthumously John H. Michaels, Principal, The Michaels Group. The event will be held Wednesday, May 4. If you are interested in purchasing a seat, a table or a program ad you can download the response form for that purpose.
We hope to see you there.
