ASAE is recognizing 23 organizations with a 2014 Power of A Gold Award and another 22 with a Power of A Silver Award this year. The Power of A Awards recognize a select number of organizations annually that distinguish themselves with innovative, effective and broad-reaching programs and activities that positively impact America and the world.
The Power of A 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. ASAE received roughly 100 entries in this year’s awards program.
The Power of A Gold Award winners are automatically in consideration for one of six Summit Awards, ASAE’s highest honor for associations, which will be selected in July and presented at the Summit Awards Dinner in Washington, DC on October 1, 2014. This will be the 15th anniversary of the Summit Awards Dinner.
“Congratulations to this year’s Power of A Award winners for leveraging their resources and coming up with unique, innovative and inspiring ways to benefit not just their own industry or profession, but society at large,” said Paul Pomerantz, CAE, CEO of the American Society of Anesthesiologists and chair of the Power of A Awards Judging Committee. “This year, our committee had an exceptionally strong group of entries to consider, and it’s heartening to see so many organizations excelling in their work. Associations have great stories to share about their industries and professions, and it’s with great pleasure and pride that we recognize their efforts through the Power of A Awards.”
