District VII Awards
CASE District VII annually recognizes the excellence of members within the district. Winners are announced here each spring, and recipients receive certificates and trophies at the annual District VII conference.
Awards of Excellence
The Awards of Excellence showcase best practices in alumni relations, fundraising, public/government relations, advancement services, special events and outstanding communications. Experts from all disciplines throughout the district judge the entries in more than 60 categories and select the Gold, Silver and Bronze winners for each category.
Grand Gold awards are presented to truly exemplary Awards of Excellence submissions. The Gold Awards of Excellence within each specific category (e.g. fundraising, publications, writing) are judged a second time—against the other golds in that category. Grand Gold designations are awarded to submissions that stand out to the judges as truly innovative or best in that category. Grand Gold winners may not be selected for every category.
The district also recognizes outstanding individual contributions and achievements through our People Awards programs. Nominations are received from CASE members representing universities, colleges, independent schools and community colleges. People Award winners are also recognized at a special awards luncheon during our annual District VII conference.
We are pleased to announce the 2020 honorees for the People Awards, recognized at Connect West 2020 in San Francisco:
