Each year during the annual AEA International Convention & Trade Show, two prestigious awards are presented at the AEA Annual Awards Luncheon: the AEA Member of the Year, which honors an individual from an AEA regular member company; and the AEA Associate Member of the Year, which honors a company that is an AEA associate member. The winners of each award are recognized by their peers for their service and participation in the industry and in the association.
Two nominating committees – comprised of AEA member representatives, including the previous year’s winners – were created to prepare a slate of nominees for the annual awards.
