Summit Award winners honored.

ASAE honored six associations for voluntary initiatives September 30 during the fourth annual Summit Awards Dinner at the National Building Museum, Washington, D.C. Summit Awards recognize distinguished association efforts to improve society in areas such as public education and information, social innovation, citizenship and democracy enhancement, and civic and community volunteerism. Honorees were the American Association for Clinical Chemistry, Washington, D.C.; the American Dental Association, Chicago; the Central Florida Hotel and Lodging Association, Orlando; the Civil Air Patrol, Montgomery, Alabama; the International Association of Physicians in AIDS Care, Chicago; and the Minnesota Funeral Directors Association, Plymouth.

Also honored was the late George D. Kirkland, CAE, the dinner's founder, a former ASAE board chairman, and an active ASAE member. Frances Kirkland accepted a special commemorative Summit Award on her husband's behalf. Funds raised from the Summit Awards Dinner, sponsored by the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau, Gaylord Opryland Nashville Resort and Convention Center, and Hyatt Hotels, among others, support the Associations Advance America Fund, which represents association interests in Congress, the courts, and regulatory agencies.

Frances Kirkland accepts the Summit Award on behalf of her late husband, George D. Kirkland, CAE, from Tom Kuhn, CAE, president, Edison Electric Institute, Washington, D,C., and cochair of the 2003 Summit Awards Dinner.
