Nominations are being accepted for the 2007 West Virginia Business Hall of Fame which recognizes business leaders who have established a record of distinction in their field.

The deadline for nominations for the 2007 class is Aug. 31. The 2007 West Virginia Business Hall of Fame induction will be held Thursday, Nov. 15, at the Waterfront Place Hotel in Morgantown.

Nominations will remain active for three years and are not limited to West Virginia University graduates. Nominees will be judged on outstanding business performance coupled with high standards of ethics.

Nominees must have an established record of distinction, demonstrate a commitment to improving the community, serve as a role model for business students and professionals, and have a clear West Virginia connection (for example: born in the state; extended years of residency; college attendance; business presence). They must also be present to receive the award. Posthumous inductees may be represented by a family member or business associate.

Nominees are not required to have a college degree or to live in West Virginia.
