Nominate Dallas Administrative Professionals for Admin Awards

Administrative professionals currently working in Dallas and surrounding cities are eligible for nomination for Core24's second annual Admin Awards. Nominations will be accepted through August 16th on Dallas-based Core24 Founder and President Sunny Nunan learned how to be a hardworking woman in the workforce from her mother, Jeanette Castellano. Castellano re-entered the professional world as an administrative assistant at the age of 51 and today, age 79, she still works full time as a receptionist in Irving, Texas.

"My mom is the ultimate inspiration for Core24's Admin Awards, a long overdue celebration of the vital professionals who deserve front and center recognition with a formal awards program driven by the business community. The response to last year's inaugural awards was overwhelming, and we can't wait to honor another group of deserving professionals this October," said Nunan.

Supervisors, coworkers, vendors, clients, and the administrative professionals themselves are all invited to nominate administrative professionals for one or more of these nine awards categories:
