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 2022 Gold Circle Award program.

The GCA Judges orientation will be held in February 2022, with the Judging period held in late February 2022 (approx. 3.5 weeks).

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 by having their names printed in the printed program book and during MMCC General Session.
