Studley Sponsors Inaugural Association Real Estate Awards
New York, NY (August 20, 2013)
Commercial real estate services firm Studley, in conjunction with ASAE Business Services, Inc., presents the inaugural Association Real Estate Awards that will recognize associations and nonprofits around the country whose office spaces best reflect their organization’s mission.
“We are excited to join forces with ASAE on this innovative initiative which gives associations an opportunity to showcase their creativity and how they are strategically designing their office environment to enhance their overall message and support their mission,” said Tom Fulcher, Executive Vice President at Studley. “Real estate can be a key differentiator for an organization—this awards program is a chance for the best of the best to show what they have done and to give others a glimpse of what is possible.”
A committee comprised of association professionals, real estate, and interior design experts will judge the effectiveness of the office space as a medium for communicating each organization’s message. Associations are encouraged to submit photos of the lobby/reception, signage, overall design, conference facilities, individual work spaces, etc.
“As an ASAE-Endorsed Commercial Real Estate Solution and key player in the industry, Studley brings profound expertise to the table,” said ASAE Business Services, Inc. President Dixie L. Arthur. “We look forward to working with Studley as part of our overall goal to recognize organizations that are successfully integrating space into their overall identity and encourage others to consider real estate as a medium for communication.”
Submissions are due September 6, 2013. There will be an overall winner as well as four awards for excellence that will be given out to organizations in different categories: philanthropic/nonprofit/charitable/foundation; professional association; trade association; and association management company (AMC). Winners will be announced at an awards reception on Wednesday, October 16, 2013, at the ASAE Conference Center in Washington, DC.
