    There are several...but for my particular situation.......

    My nomination goes to Liz Gazer-Proudfoot for the guidance she has given me this year.

    I nominate Cindy Mikulandrich Ballard, for her astonishing focus, sense of balance, insight into the depths of the industry itself, compounded with her ability to get to the heart of what an affiliate program truly needs.
    Be at peace,

    Are these supposed to be in-house affiliate managers (and not OPMs)?

    If so, a couple that stand out to me:

    Wade Tonkin from Fanatics.com

    Milan Jara from DesignerCeilingTiles.com

    Both are ethical and hardworking, and are constantly promoting their great sites.

    Voting is now open: Multiple votes are allowed and all votes are private. Poll ends on June 30, 11:59 pm and winners will be announced on July 1. To avoid non-members coming it just to vote for their friends or co-workers, a minimum 25 post count will be required for your vote to count.

    Please Note: Cindy Mikulandrich Ballard was nominated here but she is an OPM and is nominated in that category as part of Greg Hoffman Consulting.

    Sorry for slacking and not nominating Joe Sousa... he's been amazing this year. I'd vote for him and Milan over me.

    "a minimum 25 post count will be required for your vote to count. "

    Poll has the revised, corrected count.

    Thanks Phil and all who voted. I really need to share credit on this one with my team. I couldn't do any of it without Joe (DrCool) Sousa and Erin Routzahn. It really is a team thing we have going on here that is way bigger than me.

    Congrats to my fellow nominees and to the other Managers out there who didn't get nominated who bust it every day to help their affiliates succeed and run ethical programs.
