Community Achievement Award Awardees

The Community Achievement Award recognizes a SIG, professional or student chapter's outstanding accomplishments in achieving the Society's goals through a wide range of programs and activities. The Community Achievement Awards are presented at STC Summit the year after the award was earned. The award reflects the year the award is presented, e.g. the 2019 award is for work completed in 2018.
