In 2019, the association community is celebrating the 10th anniversary of the Power of A and 20 years of the annual Summit Dinner when we come together to recognize associations who demonstrate how their work strengthens America and the world. This year will be a banner year to win one of these prestigious industry awards.

We encourage you to enter the Power of A Awards by April 30, 2019. It’s time to let others know about the great work your association and its professionals do to advance society. Each entry helps paint the picture of the association community’s valuable contributions to society on the local, national and global levels.  Speak with your colleagues now about what programs or activities may be deserving of an entry.

Your association does amazing things that benefit your profession, trade, and the public. You conduct game-changing research, develop new products, diversify or train the workforce, help navigate crises, strengthen security, make lives better through volunteerism, and/or improve conditions globally. It’s time to share your work with the world.

And, it’s not difficult to nominate your association’s work. Simply fill out an online entry form, and submit a $50 fee per entry.  Your entries will be panel-reviewed for an award and also may be showcased by ASAE on The Power of A website, in a newsletter or even shared with policymakers to illustrate the differences we make in every industry, every state, every day. Anyone who is involved in the association community should enter.

If you are named a Summit Award winner, your association will be formally recognized in October at ASAE’s prestigious Annual Power of A Summit Awards Dinner held at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.  You can view the videos that were created for the 2018 winners here.  Gold and silver winners are provided with certificates and print and digital materials to promote their programs.
