WASHINGTON, DC (June 16, 2021)

 The Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) announces winners of the 41st Annual AM&P Network EXCEL Awards.

The EXCEL Awards are the largest and most prestigious program recognizing excellence and leadership in association media, publishing, marketing and communication.  With 240 awards presented across 82 categories, the ceremony culminated with the EXTRA! Award, honoring the most outstanding entry across all categories.

In addition to 81 gold winners, the AM&P Network named 84 silver and 75 bronze winners. Among the companies winning the most gold awards were Association of American Colleges and Universities, GRAPHEK, Imagination and National Association of REALTORS®.

“This year’s EXCEL Award winners deserve special praise for producing outstanding work in the midst of a global pandemic resulting in quarantine and remote work,” said SIIA President and CEO Jeff Joseph. “Our honorees overcame these challenges, truly representing the ‘best of the best’. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!”

This year’s EXTRA! Award was presented to The National Association of REALTORS®.  For 21 years, their Good Neighbor Awards have honored realtors who make an extraordinary impact through volunteer work.  Taking extensive safety precautions, their team filmed on location in July/August 2020, capturing the award-winning video stories of realtors who make the world a better place.
