ASAE Recognizes Nine Associations with a Power of A Gold Award

Category: AwardsTags:

ASAE is recognizing nine associations with a 2011 Power of A Gold Award. Each winner was handpicked by The Power of A Awards Judging Committee.

The Power of A Awards are the premier program honoring associations that exemplify how the association industry and its professionals are essential to a stronger America and world. The Awards recognize and celebrate the extraordinary 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 Gold Award is the highest recognition that a program can receive within one of the five Power of A Award categories.  All Power of A Gold Award winners are eligible to be selected for an ASAE Summit Award, the highest honor given to an association program.

ASAE received nearly 100 entries in the first year of the Power of A Awards. In addition to the Power of A Gold Award winners, the selection committee recognized six entries with The Power of A Summit Award, the highest recognition, and 16 with The Power of A Silver Award.
