The Gold Circle Award (GCA) program recognizes excellence in marketing, membership and communication programs produced by associations. Entries for the Gold Circle Awards competition are evaluated in each category based on established criteria for excellence in association marketing, membership, and communications programs. Judges are from a variety of associations, nonprofits, and for-profit organizations. GCA trophies are given out each year to the most deserving associations, those that truly stand head and shoulders above their peers. 

Gold Circle Award Judge Eligibility

The Gold Circle Award Committee seeks experienced marketing, membership, and communication professionals to serve as judges for the 2024 Gold Circle Award program. The GCA Judges orientation will be held on February 21, 2024, at 12-1pm, EST.  The judging period opens February 22, 2024 and extends through March 18, 2024. Final Judging calls (30 minutes) will take place the week of March 25-29, 2024.

Even if you are applying for a Gold Circle Award, you may serve as a judge in a different category than that which you are applying for recognition. 

In exchange for their time, Gold Circle judges get an inside look at some of the most innovative and outstanding marketing, membership, and communication projects and programs in the association profession. Judges are recognized for their contributions to the competition at the ASAE Marketing, Membership and Communications Conference. Specific questions regarding serving as a judge may be directed to goldcircle@asaecenter.org.
