The Power of Associations Awards


Every day associations around the country sponsor programs, activities, and initiatives that advance industries and professions, improve our quality of life, and solve pressing problems. The Power of Associations Awards were created to showcase this amazing work. As an association professional, you are part of a larger community of innovators, communicators, volunteers, mentors, and researchers, whose expertise serves as the cornerstone of our global economy. Associations tap into the power of millions to create a stronger America and world; this is The Power of Associations.


The Power of Associations Awards are the premier program honoring associations that exemplify how the association industry and professionals are essential to a stronger America and world. The Awards recognize and celebrate the extraordinary contributions associations make to society year-round through industry/professional advancement; global development; diversity and inclusion practices; advocacy; and community support and engagement.


Entering your program for a Power of Associations Award is easy and there are numerous opportunities for recognition. Each year hundreds of association executives and industry partners join us in DC to celebrate The Power of Associations Awards winners at the Power of Associations - Summit Awards Dinner. The 25th Annual Power of Associations – Summit Awards will take place on Tuesday, September 24, 2024, at the National Building Museum.


Promote your achievements. Celebrate our Community's collective influence on the world. The 2024 application is closed. There is a $50 fee per entry until the Deadline of May 7 at 11:59 PM ET.
