CMCP has a long-standing tradition of honoring our member organizations whose actions reflect sustained dedication to our mission.

We have also recently introduced two additional awards that recognize individuals who have demonstrated an outstanding commitment to diversity and inclusion.

The awards described below, given annually, are just one of the ways in which CMCP honors these organizations and individuals, and will be presented during the Recognition Lunch at the CMCP Annual Business Conference on September 13, 2019 at the L.A. Grand Hotel in Los Angeles.

Award Nominations Deadline is July 12, 2019
