ASAE & The Center Honor Six Associations with 2008 Summit Award

WASHINGTON, DC-Six associations have been selected by ASAE & The Center for Association Leadership's Associations Advance America (AAA) Committee to receive the 2008 Summit Award - ASAE's highest honor for associations that implement innovative community-based programs. The Summit Awards will be presented at the 9th Annual Summit Awards Dinner, September 23, at the National Building Museum in Washington, DC.

Part of the AAA Awards Program, the Summit Award symbolizes the very best efforts engineered by associations across the country in areas like public education/information, economic development, business and social innovation, skills training/development and civic and volunteer activities. The six Summit Award Recipients for 2008 were selected from a field of 38 Award of Excellence winners from three earlier AAA judging rounds this year.

"Congratulations to the winners of the 2008 Summit Award. These recognized programs exemplify the very best efforts of associations to benefit society. We received many outstanding submissions this year and are delighted to present these six organizations with the highest award in the association community," said Matthew R. D'Uva, CAE, president of SOCAP International and chairman of the AAA Committee.

ASAE & The Center's Summit Awards Dinner will bring together association executives, government officials and business and community leaders for an evening to celebrate the value of associations and their impact on society.
