AMSOV values volunteer involvement and innovation in development, education, outreach, membership, and fundraising. We know our members are trailblazers, creators, pioneers, groundbreakers, and discoverers, and AMSOV wants to celebrate your ideas. For that reason, AMSOV has created the Innovator Awards.
Awards are given every two years at AMSOV's biennial conference. The submission process begins in the months leading up to the conference and best ideas are determined by AMSOV's Board of Directors. The application form for the upcoming Innovator Awards cycle will be posted here in the second half of 2023, prior to AMSOV's Kansas City conference scheduled for April 18-21, 2024. A reminder about the Awards and the deadline for application submission will also be sent to AMSOV members via e-mail and the newsletter, and posted on social media.
