ASAE recently announced the winners of the 2018 Power of A Awards, which recognize associations that distinguish themselves with innovative, effective and broad-reaching programs and activities that positively impact America and the world.

ASAE is honoring 16 associations with a Power of A Gold Award this year, and 34 associations with a Power of A Silver Award. ASAE will be engaging in a number of promotional activities throughout the summer and fall to celebrate these award-winning initiatives.

The Power of A Awards are part of The Power of A program, an industry brand and awareness campaign that helps associations tell their story to key audiences including policymakers, the media, business leaders and their own members. Associations represent different industries and professions but they are all part of a collective association industry that makes extraordinary contributions to society here in the United States and throughout the world.

“Congratulations to the 2018 Power of A Award winners. There are very few things that get done, very few ideas that get implemented, without an association being involved at some point in the process,” said ASAE President and CEO John Graham, FASAE, CAE. “That’s a story we can all be proud of, and one that deserves to be shared with others to create a deeper understanding and appreciation for associations and their role in the world.”
