Honors Gala: Step Up, Shout Out

Get ready to Step Up and give a Shout Out to the best of the best at our annual fundraising event, the Honors Gala on June 22!  While keeping our tradition of recognizing those who've made a truly meaningful impact, we have also reimagined the event, down to the brand-new, electrifying venue, Morgan Manufacturing

Where Tradition Meets Innovation
But this isn't your average dinner event. We’re shaking things up with an altered dress code - dressy, but with a twist! Get ready for a buzz–worthy night of non-stop fun, energy, and entertainment – where you’ll have a ball – a sneaker ball that is. Whether it’s trainers or kicks, high-tops, or flip-flops, we can’t wait to see how you pair elegance with comfort. Need more inspiration? Check out the FORUM Magazine article on stepping up your style for Honors Gala. 

Not only will you have a blast reconnecting with your association peers and industry icons, but you'll also be supporting a great cause. We're raising money for scholarships through the Association Forum Foundation to support the empowered leaders of tomorrow on their journey. So, let's come together and make a difference while having the time of our lives!

Join us for an unforgettable experience that will leave you feeling energized and proud to be a part of something that will make a difference. We believe One Idea Can Change the World®. Your support of this event will help make it a reality.
