The Sales Lead Management Association (SLMA) announced today that nominations for its annual election of the ’50 Most Influential People in Sales Lead Management 2011′ will open October 1st. James Obermayer, CEO of the SLMA, said, “Last year there were 5,810 votes cast for 99 nominees, by 3,786 people (each voter may choose up to three nominees). This year we expect the nominations and votes to double.”

The annual election has a nomination period of October 1st through October 25th, followed by a voting period from November 1st through November 30th. Only members of the SLMA may nominate people they think deserve recognition (membership in the SLMA is free). On December 5th, the ‘Top 50’ winners will be announced in the order of highest votes received. The complete rules for nominations, as well as nomination forms, are available on the SLMA site, .

SLMA co-founder Susan Campanale said, “The Top 50 list is created in a two-stage process: nominating and voting.”

— Nominations: SLMA members may nominate one or more professional individuals for consideration through October 25th, which is a week after Sales Lead Management Week (October 9-15, 2011). Nominations are accepted from SLMA members only. Nonmembers, however, may nominate someone once they join SLMA, and membership is free.

— Voting: Any member or non-member may vote for candidates listed on the SLMA site beginning November 1st, 2011. The ’50 Most Influential Sales Lead Management Professionals’ List will be published on December 5th, 2011.

Ken Murray, President of VanillaSoft, stated, “The SLMA has become a leader in sharing news and information, and in educating and recognizing leaders in sales lead management. The association has become a vital stopping point for the industry. Their recognition of the top 50 leaders is spot-on and one of the highlights for industry members. Congrats SLMA on another great year of contribution.”

Andy Brownell, CMO of LeadMaster said, “The SLMA Top 50 Most Influential People in Sales Lead Management is great way to recognize industry leadership, outstanding performance and those responsible for increasing the visibility of all aspects of lead management, from social CRM to marketing automation to the next great idea.
