Awards Gala

40th Annual EXCEL Awards Gala
Wednesday, June 24, 2020
National Housing Center, Washington, DC

The EXCEL Awards recognize excellence and leadership in association media, publishing, marketing and communications. The competition is open to nonprofit and for-profit and associations and industry service partners submitting on behalf of association clients, regardless of whether they are members of Association Media & Publishing to enter.

Winners are announced in June, featured in the August/September issue of Signature magazine, and honored during our Annual EXCEL Awards Gala, a dinner and celebration that kicks off the Association Media & Publishing Annual Meeting. 

For two years in a row, a sold-out audience of more than 300 have celebrated excellence in association publishing and communications at the Annual EXCEL Awards Gala in Washington, DC. The Emerging Leader Awards, honoring rising stars in our industry, as well the Mitch Mohanna Lifetime Achievement Awards are also given out.


The best thing about the EXCEL Awards? That we are able to share and celebrate this success with our peers – friends and colleagues from the associations community in the USA – at a lovely dinner and event during the AM&P annual meeting at the end of June. I can’t wait!"
