Awards Program





The MBA CSEA Awards Program recognizes significant contributions to the association and the industry.

Why do we give out awards?
Appreciation – it's important to thank people for their hard work
Inspiration – it inspires our membership with the contributions of their colleagues
Aspiration – it shows us what can be achieved

Award categories include:

  • Continuous Leadership Award
  • Emerging Leaders Award
  • One-time Contribution Award
  • Mel Penn New Member Recognition Award
  • Innovation Award
  • Members' Excellence Award
  • Honorary Lifetime Membership

Awardees are selected from nominations provided by the MBA CSEA membership and are announced at MBA CSEA conferences (winners do not need to be present).
