CNM takes over Ethics in Business awards

Central New Mexico Community College has taken over the New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards, the future of which had been in some doubt.

Samaritan Counseling Center, which had run the awards since the late ‘90s, closed last year but put the program out for bid to keep it running. The program had been a major fund-raiser for Samaritan.

A CNM spokesman said it cost the school $90,000 to take over the program, an outlay it expects to recoup after two events.

“We are proud to be the new stewards of this highly regarded award program that honors the organizations in our state that are leading by example with highly ethical standards,” CNM President Katharine Winograd said in a news release.

CNM, CNM Ingenuity and the CNM Foundation will be involved in the program going forward, according to the release. The school said proceeds from the annual event will go toward scholarships “for CNM students who are dedicated to ethics and an ethical career” and to support ethics training programs through CNM Ingenuity.

This year’s awards event is scheduled for April 25 at Sandia Resort. The Albuquerque Journal is a sponsor of the program.

To determine the awards, nominees are taken from the community, beginning each summer. Students from the University of New Mexico’s Anderson School of Management interview nominees and prepare written reports that are then reviewed by a screening committee made up of community volunteers. The committee also meets with finalists before deciding on the final honors.

A total of five awards are made in four categories: for-profit business (with two honorees); nonprofit organizations; individual leader; and young leader.

In the non-profit category, CNM was a New Mexico Ethics in Business Award winner in 2015 and the CNM Foundation won in 2006.
