Phase 1 of the Later Stage Award is to be filled out by GCCA member clusters. You may nominate a total of 10 companies. These companies must be members of your cluster to be eligible for nomination. The GCCA expects that cluster managers notify their companies they plan to nominate them and gain the company agreement before filling out the form. The GCCA defers that informative responsibility to the cluster.
Companies that did not win in previous years may be nominated again.
Once a company has been nominated, the GCCA expects the cluster to alert the company to the Phase 2 process. Companies must complete Phase 2 to be eligible for the awards. Incomplete submissions will not be considered.
The deadline to submit nominations for Phase 1 is June 1, 2013.
