The 2018 Salute to Association Excellence celebrated its 29th anniversary on March 1st, 2018. This incredible event hosted over 550 attendees, honored Association Executive of the Year, Arlene Pietranton, Association Partner of the Year, Edward Wendling, Young & Aspiring Association Professionals, Leading Association Lobbyists and the TRENDS 2017 All Media Contest Winners.
The All Media Contest is an incredibly unique competition that honors associations across America and their media efforts throughout the year. With 23 categories to choose from, associations submitted hundreds of entries highlighting their best advertising media kits, annual reports, convention programs, books, apps, podcasts, and more. The bronze, silver, and gold honorees were announced live at the event on March 1st. To see the entire list of medal winners, visit the All Media Gallery here. The contest’s top honor was presented to Meals on Wheels, who received the Publisher’s Choice Award for their #SaveLunch PSA. One of the biggest highlights of the event was when, to the surprise of Meals on Wheels, this incredibly moving video was projected on the big screen live, for the entire audience to see. Take a look at the award-winning video below.
