Bringing Associations Together To Boost Performance


Association Awards & Hall of Fame

The Association Awards give due recognition for the excellence and accomplishment by associations and outstanding individuals. The four award categories acknowledge different areas of achievement in the sector. 

The Association of the Year Award™ is presented to an exemplary association that has achieved overall excellence. The Association Achievement of the Year Award™ is presented to an association that has made an outstanding achievement in a particular project, area of operations, governance, activity or initiative. The Association Turnaround of the Year Award™ is presented to an association that was in crisis or on the brink of closing down and successfully turned itself around in recent years. Associations Hall of Fame™ inductees will be individuals who have made an outstanding high-level contribution and commitment to an association or associations over a long period of time i.e. 30 or more years.
