Awards & Recognition
Share |
The ACCED-I Awards & Recognition program is dedicated to recognizing individuals and institutions that have set the standard of excellence during the year.  Receiving an ACCED-I Award is a great way to gain recognition, not only within the collegiate conference and event industry, but at your institution. By recognizing outstanding service in ourselves and others, we bring prestige to our profession and our institutional roles.
 
The Nominations and Recognition Action Team encourages ACCED-I members to consider the accomplishments of their colleagues, their institutions and their own service to ACCED-I and to the conference and events profession. Quality work, exceptional performance and dedication deserve acknowledgement.
