And here are the winners....

Yesterday we live streamed the 2020 memcom membership excellence awards. Hosted by our partners Liquona, from their studio in Surrey and compered by Lucy George and Voice of God Mark Stevens, the studio was positively fizzing with energy and anticipation. This was not how any of us anticipated celebrating the awards back in February, but with the creativity and dedication of our fantastic partners and team, we were able to bring something special to not only our usual community, but right across the globe.

 

A huge congratulations to everyone who made it on to the shortlist for the awards. This year, we received an unprecedented number of entries of an increasingly high calibre and our judging panels had to make some tough decisions. We also welcomed many new organisations who entered the awards for the very first time so thank you to everyone who participated in some way.

 

It was heartening to see so many of you celebrating with your colleagues whether in virtual rooms or in person in the office. In these unusual times, it feels particularly poignant to celebrate the value of the work that the professional membership sector brings to society.  

 

Once again, thank you to all our award entrants and judges and to our partners and sponsors including our Headline Awards Partner the Financial Services Compensation Scheme. and our other Headline Partners Liquona and Pixl8.

 

And now to the list of winners and all those who were highly commended, congratulations. Trophies will be on their way to you shortly.
