The digitalNow Leaders of Distinction program is designed to introduce up-and-coming association leaders to the digitalNow community by awarding them a complimentary digitalNow registration, and facilitating their integration into the community through mentoring and networking support during the event.
Any association CEO who has been appointed from 2016- 2021 is eligible to be nominated for this award.
Nominees can be an emerging leader or CEO who has been appointed in the last 5 years, or an association executive who has a demonstrated career progression forward to the executive leadership role. Only members of the digitalNow Advisory Group are eligible to submit nominations. All nominations must be submitted by October 8, 2021. Candidates will be selected and announced by October 25, 2021.
In addition to meeting the eligibility requirement of being a newly appointed association CEO (within the past five years), each nomination must be accompanied by a statement about why the candidate is a good fit for the digitalNow community.
Leaders of Distinction will be awarded a complimentary digitalNow registration for the 2021 conference and honored during the Leaders of Distinction breakfast, but awardees are responsible for their own travel and lodging expenses. Leaders of Distinction agree to participate in sharing their digitalNow experience through social media posts, interviews and press interviews as determined by digitalNow staff.
