UPDATE: Nominations have now closed and a winner has been chosen. The enthusiastic response has truly warmed our cold, cynical hearts. Thanks to everyone who send in nominations.

Oct. 16 is National Boss Day and we're looking for Portland's best boss. Does your boss buy the office doughnuts every week? Do they organize company vacations in Hawaii? Do they give you a hug every morning just to let you know you're special? Do you work for Bruce Springsteen?

Send about 50 words to rbrown@wweek.com on why your boss (or you, don't be modest now) is the best boss in Portland and we'll feature them in the paper next week. We'll also give your workplace a box of sample-size Pop Chips, a flat of Vitamin Water that isn't even expired yet and bragging rights for a whole year.
