Each year, CIRI recognizes investor relations professionals who make a significant contribution to the practice of investor relations. These individuals are nominated by you – their peers. As a member of the IR community and CIRI, we ask you to consider nominating an IRO whose program or initiatives you admire. Is there an IRO who stands out as a leader amid the COVID-19 crisis? If so, make sure they get the recognition they deserve and nominate them for a CIRI award.

The Belle Mulligan Award for Leadership in Investor Relations is given in honour of the late Belle Mulligan to recognize individuals who have shown singular leadership in one or more aspects of the practice of IR. These could include new or improved applications of technology, progressive approaches to disclosure, outstanding mentorship, or remarkable leadership in any other aspects of IR.

CIRI's Award for Excellence in Investor Relations is given by CIRI to honour individuals who have made an outstanding contribution to the investor relations profession and to CIRI.

Nominations can be submitted to Jane Maciel until August 27, 2020.
