SURGE Innovation Pioneer Award

Do you know a forward-thinking person who deserves celebrating?
Submit a video by October 15th nominating them for the Innovation Pioneer Award!

What is the Award?

The future is ripe with opportunity. Despite disruptive technological forces and widespread change, our associations are well-poised to flourish in the face of future developments. Their biggest asset? The visionary and dedicated people who make up the industry.

We are launching a competition to find the SURGE Innovation Pioneer. Do you know a person whose initiative has sparked meaningful change? To nominate them for the Innovation Pioneer Award, you are invited to create a short video explaining your nomination, and detailing how they are taking the association space towards a new and bright future.

How To Submit

Until October 15th, submissions will be open for a video of 2 minutes or less, that showcases your nomination for the Innovation Pioneer Award. If somebody has spearheaded a project, created a resource, or invented a product that makes you optimistic about the future, we want to hear about them!

Finalists will then be chosen, after which the short-listed videos will be available for the community to vote upon on the SURGE event page, under the ‘Vote’ tab. Voting closes on November 1st.

The winner will be announced at the start of SURGE Optimism Day Two: November 8th.
