“Veteran VIPs have shown a long-term commitment to the fields and help keep the industry stable,” said McKnight’s Editorial Director John O’Connor.


An external panel of industry experts judged nominations. All winners will be honored at a virtual awards celebration on May 18. An educational forum will follow on  May 19.
