We are opening nominations for Electrician Pro Of The Quarter (1st Quarter 2015)​ today so let's get this started!

The Electrician Pro of the Quarter will receive the following:
http://www.electriciantalk.com/artic...f-the-quarter/
  • $1000 eGift Card* and ElectricianTalk Swag
  • Featured in our Newsletter
  • A custom badge in the community.
  • Listed on our Electrician Pro of the Month page

*If you prefer, we can send $1,000 to your PayPal account.

The best thing about this community is the wisdom, experience, and support shared. Without this professional camaraderie and mentorship there would be no purpose to ElectricianTalk. The Electrician Pro of the Month program gives you the opportunity to say, “Thank You!” to your fellow members of Electrician Talk who have helped you make the most out of your profession.

With that said, who is the first ElectricianTalk member that comes to mind whom you respect, appreciate, and who exemplifies professional prowess? That’s who you should nominate.

Nominations will be accepted until January 31, 2015 after which we will total up the count to determine the top 5 member nominations. Then we’ll open up the official voting poll to all ElectricianTalk members.

To Qualify:

- Nominees must have a minimum of 250 posts in the community.

- Nominees must be willing to provide a picture (business logo is fine) and a unique biography. Failing to provide these in a timely manner will disqualify the nomination so you may want to start working on your stories now, just in case! You can see examples here: http://www.electriciantalk.com/f36/

-You may not nominate yourself.


Rules:

- You can only win Electrician Pro of the Quarter one time per year.

- Each member can only nominate ONE member per voting cycle.

- You are welcome to nominate any member of ElectricianTalk. However, we, the ElectricianTalk Staff, reserve the right to screen all nominees.

- As members of the community, moderators are also eligible for nomination.

Additional Notes:

- Nominations are posted publicly here. This is your Electrician of the Quarter, for you, by you. Having this process public helps everyone see that the nominations are chosen by the community.

- However, voting is anonymous. Each member gets only ONE vote, but no one can see who voted for whom. You can only see how many votes each nominee receives.

Are you ready to get started?

Just post a reply below with the exact username of the member you choose to nominate.If you have the link to their profile that will help me as well.

Let the nominations begin!

I don't care how this sounds but IMO, Speedy Pete has been a moderator here forever. I don't even know how many years- from the beginning, anyway. He has been thru it all and I would like to nominate him for his tireless effort in trying to keep this forum alive.

I would just like to say to a few PRIVATE MESSENGERS to me that I appreciate their intentions but I am not really, really ready for the nomination. I try to contribute some good to the forum but my hands are not totally clean. They are not clean mostly due to one of my gloves slipping off at the FORUM annual picnic and too many people saw it. It was a very long line.

99cent gets my vote. He's continously provided me guidance to this trade for the past couple months and if it weren't for all his knowledge I wouldn't have gotten my foot in the door.

I know a lot of folks (including myself) want to nominate Big John but he has declined each time that he has been nominated. I've tried twisting his arm but it didn't work.

So, unless he reconsiders, you might want to go to the next nominee on your list or your nomination won't count.

I nominate flyboy. He always has a great insight into the business end of our trade. And I'm on my phone can't seem to post a link to his profile, sorry!

If Big John still refuses , then i'll go with our resident curmudgeon. When you decipher what he says , it's often pretty good info.
