The Gold Circle Awards recognizes extraordinary marketing, membership, and communications efforts in 15 different categories that move our organizations forward. 

Marketing, membership, and communications play a vital role in associations—whether to connect with members, keep them informed of important issues, or raise awareness of programs and initiatives.

Creativity, innovation in successful marketing, membership and communications programs should be applauded and recognized and that’s precisely what the Gold Circle Awards are all about!

Winners are Recognized Year-Round!

Recipients of the 2018 Gold Circle Awards will be recognized at the 2018 Marketing, Membership & Communications Conference. In addition, their innovations and best practices will be highlighted throughout the year through a variety of channels and resources including articles, conference sessions, and more.  See the impressive list of this year's 2018 Honorees.

The 2018 Gold Circle Awards application period opened December 18, 2017 and closed on February 7, 2018.
