About the Summit Awards 

The Summit Awards, founded by George D. Kirkland, CAE, is ASAE’s signature event of the year showcasing the unique and indispensable role associations play in America and around the world in bettering communities, fostering volunteer efforts, and harnessing the collective will and expertise of their members to ensure a better quality of life. As reinforced by the Power of A program, America's associations have the power to drive the economy, put people to work, prepare for the future, and enrich lives. The Summit Awards is our industry's chance to celebrate our profession and share that positive message with other key audiences. 

Proceeds from the Summit Awards directly benefit ASAE's Power of A Fund, which provides the resources ASAE needs to lobby Congress, activate grassroots networks, hold forums with elected officials, perform research, and continue to share the Power of A message with legislators, the media, and other opinion leaders.
