The Complete Guide to DFW NACE Awards

Every year, our DFW NACE chapter recognizes the outstanding work of our chapter members and volunteers at our annual awards gala. Our chapter wouldn’t be what it is without our members and we want to make sure we honor all of your hard work.

There are 3 main categories and a few different awards under each:

1) Member Awards, 2) Chapter Meeting Awards, and 3) Industry Awards

Member Awards

These nominations are selected by our Board and then voted on by our Chapter Members to recognize members and business partners who have had a significant impact on the success of our DFW NACE chapter.

The awards in this category are:
1) Rising Star
2) Business Partner of the Year
3) Member of the Year
4) Committee Member of the Year
5) The President’s Award

**The LAST day to vote on Member Awards for our 2020 awards gala is January 24th, 2020. If you are a DFW NACE member, check your email for your private voting link.

Chapter Meeting Awards

These awards recognize the planning, production, and execution of our monthly programs and celebrate the phenomenal work of our volunteers and sponsors who helped to produce them. These nominations are decided by the surveys that YOU complete after each meeting. One of the many reasons why it’s so important that you fill out the surveys!

The awards in this category are:
1) Facility of the Year
2) Entertainment of the Year
3) Best Meeting Decor
4) Culinary Presentation of the Year
5) Program of the Year

Industry Awards

These awards recognize the outstanding event work that you do throughout the year with your clients and business. Everyone is eligible to submit their own work and submissions will be judged by a group of independent judges. Members can submit for FREE, and there is a $50 submission fee for guests. So you really have no excuse to not submit! We can’t celebrate you and your phenomenal event work if you don’t submit it!

The awards in this category are:
1) Wedding of the Year
2) Team Event of the Year
3) Event Production of the Year
4) Event Photography of the Year
5) Catered Event of the Year
