About the Annual Awards Luncheon & Celebration

The ESSAE Annual Awards Luncheon & Celebration, to be held in conjunction with The Meetings, Membership and Marketing Institute in March 2023, showcases excellence in the association industry.   Join us to learn, network and celebrate all in one value packed day! 

The Annual Awards program helps to:

  • Promote awareness of the innovative, results-oriented programs, services, and initiatives undertaken by your association.
  • Attain validation of your activities that you can share with your association’s membership, volunteer leaders, and other stakeholders.
  • Justify continued investment in programs and activities that are related to the core mission or purpose of your association.
  • Showcase for others how your association helps advance the industry or profession you represent.
The Annual Awards Celebration provides the association community and industry the opportunity to showcase the work they have accomplished in the past year to take their organization’s mission and vision farther, exceed expectations, and make an impact in the community they serve.
While we learn and adjust to changes in our industry, now is the time to celebrate your successes so that others can be inspired and learn new ways to provide value to their own membership base and stakeholders.
