“Each year, we look for great examples of communications and marketing tactics and campaigns from associations and nonprofits,” said Mike Boa, director of communications and marketing at the Casualty Actuarial Society and chair of the Gold Circle Awards Committee. “The GCA program is a great opportunity for association professionals to showcase how they are shaping their outreach efforts in innovative and creative ways to engage their target audiences.”

Entries for the Gold Circle Awards competition will be evaluated in each category based on established criteria for excellence in association marketing, membership, communications, and component relations programs. Judges from a variety of associations, nonprofits, and for-profit organizations will evaluate the entries.
