The Community Industry Awards celebrate the achievements of the best in the community industry. This program began in 2019, when the CMX team looked back on the year and were in awe of the incredible achievements of the people and organizations in this industry. We knew we needed to celebrate – publicly, and with a big splash! – and so the Community industry Awards were born. This program has grown into an unstoppable celebration, loved by our community and the industry.

So, let’s do it again!

Announcing the opening of the 2022 Community Industry Awards! This will be the third annual season of this awards program, and we can’t wait to celebrate the achievements of the best in the community industry!
