Association Awards & Hall of Fame

Associations Forum invites nominations for the 2022 Association Awards™ & Associations Hall of Fame™

The Association Awardsᵀᴹ recognise excellence and accomplishment by associations and outstanding individuals.

The Association Turnaround of the Year Award™ is presented to an association that was in very significant difficulties and successfully turned itself around in recent times.
