Top Women in Convenience 2024 Nomination Form

The awards program encompasses four categories honoring the full retail spectrum.

Nominations are presently being accepted for Convenience Store News' Top Women in Convenience (TWIC) awards program, which recognizes the integral role women play in convenience retailing. Women will be honored from the retailer, distributor and supplier communities in the following categories:

  1. Women of the Year — retailer (chain or independent), supplier or distributor executives of any rank who have had an exceptional impact on the success or direction of their company, AS WELL AS a positive impact on the convenience store industry as a whole. These visionaries have steered their companies into new markets, new opportunities and strong measurable growth.
  2. Senior-Level Leaders — retailer (chain or independent), supplier and distributor executives at the level of C-suite, vice president or director who work with the c-store channel of trade and who have executed on a strategy and transformed their business in a positive manner.
  3. Rising Stars — retailers, suppliers and distributors with job titles from store manager to below director who are making their mark in the c-store industry even at the early stages of their careers.
  4. Mentors — retailers, suppliers and distributors who have made an extraordinary effort, and had an extraordinary impact, on the careers of their colleagues. Nominations must include discussion of their mentorship work and its outcome for mentees in order to be considered for this category.

Nominators are encouraged to share specific initiatives, achievements and examples of leadership within the past 12 months in order to present a full picture of a candidate and demonstrate what makes her a Top Woman in Convenience.

All Top Women in Convenience winners will be prominently recognized in CSNews' August issue. An awards ceremony will be held during the 2024 NACS Show in Las Vegas.
