A question came into NYSAE headquarters recently re: awards promotion. Here is the question and the recommendations we shared.

Q. Our awards program is not doing well. We have fewer entries in today than we had last year at this time. Since there’s a dollar amount attached to each entry, we’re very worried about the budget. Can you please share any tips with us that we may not have thought about to increase the amount of entries and revenue?

A. Here are a few tactics to consider:
Industry News
January 12, 2020--After an extended battle with cancer, the American Society of Association Executives announced the passing of its President and CEO John H. Graham IV, FASAE, CAE. The NYSAE Board, members, industry partners and staff extend its deepest sympathies to John’s family.

Graham was a transformative leader for ASAE and a mentor to many in the association community. During his tenure, which began August 1, 2003, ASAE more than doubled its membership and developed a wealth of innovative products and services to benefit association professionals and their partners. Graham leaves behind an organization marking its centennial in 2020, and his spirit will forever be the foundation of ASAE’s work moving forward.

It will cover the legal aspects of lobbying versus advocacy, with a particular focus on 501 (c)(3) and 501 (c)(6) organizations. Chief Executives will then discuss what is often on an advocacy "wish list" and how that aligns with organizational implementation.
