NACE (National Association for Catering and Events) members from across the USA, celebrate the accomplishments of their membership, every summer for the NACE Awards at the NACE Experience! Conference.
Awards for Chapter Activities, Association Volunteerism and Service, and Industry Awards for excellence are presented in a variety of categories.
When you enter industry awards, judged by peers, the importance of winning, for you and your team, is priceless.
Just the process of entering gives you fresh appreciation of the excellence of your efforts, and can remind you of why you’re in business. If you’re fortunate to be one of the winners, you get the added satisfaction of showcasing your achievement for clients, prospects, and colleagues.
More than a sales tool for those who meet you, it is a tangible reminder of what you are capable of, when all the stars align, and you give creativity and client service the best possible effort.
When the winners are announced, there are familiar names… and unfamiliar ones. That’s the best part. Hearing a winner announced, and thinking ‘Who’s that?”
It means that new talent has emerged and entered the competition. It’s a great thing. It validates the simple notion: You can’t win if you don’t enter.
Examine your industry award opportunities. Find out the parameters and deadlines. And then, make a commitment to document and enter one or two of your exceptional efforts. Make the time, and do it.
DEADLINE for NACE Awards Entry is May 1st.
