Nominations are Open for 20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management for 2012.

Sales Lead Management Association is accepting nominations for this year’s “SLMA 20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management.” Nominations are typically for managers working for CRM software, marketing automation software, and other sales lead management firms, as well as marketing management in B2B and B2C companies.

Only SLMA members (membership is free) are invited to nominate women and from those nominations, twenty will be selected as the SLMA 20 Women to Watch in 2012.   Winners, chosen by a panel of independent judges, will be announced on April 2nd at 10 a.m. PST. 

“The women we would like to recognize,” said Susan Campanale, SLMA’s vice president, “are most likely in CRM, marketing automation, or lead generation firms; or in telemarketing, lead management software, exhibits management, or lead management service companies and agencies (direct, brand, public relations and internet).”

Nominees are judged on the candidate’s contributions to marketing, sales and sales lead management efforts. Additional qualifications, such as board positions, book and article authorships, and speaking on behalf of the subject of sales lead management and marketing ROI, are taken into account.  This program is not based on popularity. 

The sponsors for this year’s program are HubSpot, PointClear, Event Technologies, and Marketo HubSpot's Inbound Marketing Software gives you all the tools you need to make marketing that people will actually love - earning quality leads and loyal customers in return. PointClear is a prospect development company helping B2B companies fulfill their forecasts, not just their pipelines. Event Technologies is a full-service provider of lead management solutions for trade show exhibitors. Marketo is the revenue performance management company, transforming how marketing and sales teams of all sizes work - and work together - to accelerate predictable revenue.

"A good marketer,” Jeanne Hopkins of HubSpot said, “understands the sales process in their organization. A great marketer knows how to generate, nurture and qualify the leads that feed the sales process, helping their company to achieve success. The "20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management" Program recognizes the contributions of women who understand this process.

“PointClear is honored to sponsor SLMA’s 20 Women to Watch contest for the second consecutive year,” said PointClear President, Dan McDade. These 20 women are truly best in class and we are proud that one of our own, Karla Blalock, was named to this elite group last year.”

Event Technologies President Chris Tremblay said, “The 20 Women to Watch in Sales Lead Management program is truly recognition of lifetime achievement for all of the women who are nominated. We are delighted to be a sponsor for recognizing the best and the brightest.”

Women's Empowerment - Women's Education - Women's History Month

March is Women’s History Month

The Library of Congress, National Archives and Records Administration, National Endowment for the Humanities, National Gallery of Art, National Park Service, Smithsonian Institution and United States Holocaust Memorial Museum join in paying tribute to the generations of women whose commitment to nature and the planet have proved invaluable to society.

About Women’s History Month

Women’s History Month had its origins as a national celebration in 1981 when Congress passed Pub. L. 97-28 which authorized and requested the President to proclaim the week beginning March 7, 1982 as “Women’s History Week."  Throughout the next five years, Congress continued to pass joint resolutions designating a week in March as "Women’s History Week."  In 1987 after being petitioned by the National Women’s History Project, Congress passed Pub. L. 100-9 which designated the month of March 1987 as “Women’s History Month."  Between 1988 and 1994, Congress passed additional resolutions requesting and authorizing the President to proclaim March of each year as Women’s History Month.  Since 1995, Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama have issued a series of annual proclamations designating the month of March as “Women’s History Month.” 

From the Law Library of Congress' guide to the legislative history of Women's History Month.


About This Year's Theme

Women’s Education – Women’s Empowerment
Although women now outnumber men in American colleges nationwide, the reversal of the gender gap is a very recent phenomenon. The fight to learn was a valiant struggle waged by many tenacious women—across years and across cultures—in our country.
