Digital Excellence Award


Recognizes an association for visionary innovation in use of digital technology to advance its mission. The nominated association will have a media plan in place that is updated as technology changes and opportunities arise.

The nominated association must demonstrate website excellence as evaluated on characteristics such as immediacy of overview, timeliness of content, aesthetics, consistency, ease of navigation, internal search capabilities, opportunities for online engagement that invite members to collaborate and contribute, and integration with its other social media.

The nominated association must host a Facebook page to post timely, engaging messages that attracts a substantial number of “likes” and/or interaction; and sponsor an association group on LinkedIn to facilitate dialogue and ongoing discussion forums on issues that are critical to its members, supporters, and stakeholders; and engages with other common social media platforms including Twitter.

The nominated association has created mobile apps featuring on-demand downloads and capabilities for members, supporters and stakeholders to engage the organization with immediacy; provide a hub for subject matter experts to provide educational blogs, podcasts, and videos; and electronically publishes articles and commentary to enhance its presence and market membership, fund development and events.
