Convene On Site: ASAE Summit Awards

A quick impression from the ASAE Annual Summit Awards Dinner, held at the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., last night: There’s something to be said for matching a venue to the specific mission of a specific event. The dinner honored six associations for programs that have made the world a better place through initiatives that are flat-out inspiring, from the Food Bank for New York City’s Earned Income Tax Credit program to the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Helping Babies Breathe program to the American Automobile Association’s School Safety Patrol program. And the venue was equally inspiring. The National Building Museum is one of D.C.’s grandest venues, a red-brick palace with a vast, soaring Great Hall dominated by eight 75-foot-high Corinthian columns; and last night, even the table settings (pictured above in a photo by Convene Account Executive Wendy Krizmanic) felt meaningfully ornate. It was the perfect setting in which to contemplate the heights of service to which all our organizations aspire.

    Brilliant. the co-creation of the experience is ensastiel. When you get them out of their comfort zone, make them see the round world (in a flat world mind) then they by way of creativity need to build a new reality.
