memcom excellence awards shortlist 2021

It’s been an overwhelming year for the memcom membership excellence awards, with more entries than ever before. So, this year’s judging panel had a tricky job on their hands as they sifted through hundreds of entries to end up with the 2021 shortlist... 

It’s hard to forget about the impact that COVID-19 has had - and continues to have - on the sector over the past 18(ish) months, so it was unsurprising that the Best Member Support During COVID-19 award was hugely popular this year. Entries to this award were particularly hard to judge as there were so many great examples of how the membership sector and the individuals within it have supported members and wider society.  

It has been a year that membership organisations have transitioned to put support of members over all else and there have been some great examples of organisations demonstrating exactly what they are here for. 

So many organisations rose to the challenge this year and the memcom awards have once again highlighted the most creative campaigns, the latest cutting edge technology, the best in events, the most impactful communications and more. Arguably most important though, the memcom awards have shone a light on the people right at the very core of it all. 

We’ll be announcing the winners on Thursday 30th September so do save the date.

 

Congratulations to all who have been shortlisted for this year’s awards…
