    Nominations: Best NEW Affiliate Manager or OPM in '09
    Please submit your nominations for this category through 5pm EST on 2/5/10. Shortly thereafter, the polls will be posted and they will run for two weeks.

    The winner will be announced on 2/19/10.

    Clarification: This is for people who are new to being an affiliate manager or OPM in 2009, not an existing AM or OPM with a new job.

    I'd say the person is Sarah Crosby of CJ. Nobody heard of her here as she is not even a member here. She is my PAM at CJ and coordinates with all merchants that we work with at CJ. She is a charm to work with and she follows up with every question that I have and holds regular calls ... In a nutshell, she is an AM of an AM and does know well how to draw the fine line between pubs and merchants.

    However, the chance of her winning here is perhaps ZERO because she is not even a member here and works mostly on her PAM job at CJ and her work is not known or seen by 99% of the ABWers here. She is an excellent resource for any affiliate (or perhaps a merchant). She works with many affiliates (CJPs) and of course with many CJ merchants!.

    Not necessarily. For instance, WordPress has been nominated in the past for the best tool, and they're not members. Obviously some categories (Best Moderator and Best New ABW Member come to mind) are only for members. I suspect that non-ABW members would have a much harder time winning, but they're not excluded.

    I would like to nominate Molly from Vanns.com. She has hit the ground running as an affiliate manager.

    HOLY COW - Thanks so much. Just to be mentioned here is really very flattering. I have so much more to learn (hello - Vegas will be brain overload) and you all have really helped me rock it so far. I have goosebumps and might even get a little weepy. THANKS Eric and Michael!

    And really - THANKS TO the big, warm, fuzzy ABW family. I wouldn't be doing it without you.

    Patrick Vesperman. Seriously, I have been utterly impressed with his work.

    I had to actually ASK if he was new enough and sure enough he replied to email in like 8 seconds.

    Thanks Matt - it's an honor.

    If there were a award for 'Most Awesome Signature with about every possible way to contact someone'
    ...I would nominate you

    I think the intent is that people are new to being an affiliate manager or OPM, not just with a new company.

    Good point, thank you for qualifying. I posted here before I saw he was nominated in the Best Affiliate Manager category, so you can strike my nomination from here.

    This is one of those confusing categories

    It's OK Lox. I was going to get mad at you LOL - I mean we only met like 4 years ago in Chicago right?

    But new company or new to the industry...yeah it's a bit confusing, so I understand.

    I have more to say on this category this morning...coming soon Watch out!

    I would like to vote for Sarah Bundy at The AIM Group. She has been great to work with and has brought many opportunities to the table.

    She was an OPM before she formed her company, wasn't she?

    Hi Cameron, thanks so much for the vote and it's a pleasure working with Access Development as well. I hope to continue to bring many more opportunities to the table!

    Michael, thanks for remembering Yes, I started 49Above with a partner in Nov 2008 however we weren't around long enough to count for the nominations last year and parted ways with my previous partner back in May last year due to differences of opinion.

    The AIM Group has only been around for 8 months, so I suppose it would still count in this category, though I probably would not since I've been in the industry for 5 years.

    I hope you will still consider The AIM Group to count for this category.

    Thanks again for the vote, Cam

    Molly is still a new affiliate manager for 2009 and I think her nomination should stand.
