CALL FOR NOMINATIONS
Since 1999 AHAA has been honoring those that have made significant contributions to the U.S. Hispanic advertising and marketing industry. Expanding on this program, AHAA is establishing the AHAA Hall Fame. The AHAA Hall of Fame recognizes a select group of visionaries, leaders and luminaries who have made significant contributions to the development and advancement of the Hispanic advertising and marketing field.
AHAA Hall of Fame inductees will represent the growth and achievements of the Hispanic advertising and marketing industry. In celebrating their accomplishments, we seek to encourage future industry leaders to pursue new feats of excellence.
All Past Winners of the Caballero & the AHAA Lifetime Achievement Award will automatically be in the Hall of Fame (see list below).
Induction into the AHAA Hall of Fame will be awarded to men and women who have dedicated more than 35 years to the Hispanic advertising and marketing industry. These individuals who have played an extraordinary role in the conceptualization, building and development of the Hispanic marketing and advertising field and have made outstanding and notable contributions to the profession and the community, and whose ethical standards never faltered. In addition to those who have been more visible, the AHAA Hall of Fame seeks nominees who have made crucial, behind-the-scenes contributions as well. Members into the AHAA Hall of Fame will include, but not be limited to, those that worked in agencies, media companies, research companies, production companies, academia and clients.
AHAA’s Hall of Fame will recognize the nominee’s lifelong accomplishments and contributions to the U.S. Hispanic market. Nominations can be made for those still practicing or can be made posthumously. Individuals cannot nominate themselves.
