ASAE Acknowledges 16 Programs with a Power of A Silver Award

Category: AwardsTags:

ASAE is giving Power of A Silver Awards to 16 associations that exemplify how the association industry and its professionals strengthen America and the world. The Awards recognize and celebrate the contributions associations make to society by enriching lives, creating a competitive workforce, preparing society for the future, driving innovation and making a better world.

Last year, the Associations Advance America Awards and the Associations Make a Better World Awards combined to become The Power of A Awards. The Awards are part of The Power of A, an awareness campaign launched by ASAE in 2009 to educate and inform policymakers in Washington and other outside audiences about the wealth of resources and expertise in the association community. The campaign serves as a platform to communicate the role of associations in building a stronger America and world.

The Power of A Silver Award is the second highest recognition that a program can receive within one of the five Power of A Award categories. Each winner is selected by the Power of A Awards Judging Committee.

ASAE received nearly 100 entries in the first year of the Power of A Awards. In addition to the Power of A Silver Award winners, the selection committee recognized nine programs with The Power of A Gold Award.
