The CSR Excellence Recognition Event
The committee will announce the firms receiving ACE Recognition at ACE Recognition Event along with Thanksgiving Ceremony in November. The event may include a keynote talk on CSR, short presentations by the CSR committee on CSR, and recognition ceremony for all qualifying firms.

Please note that the Award is not a competition, but requires companies to achieve certain benchmark criteria on their CSR programs. Thus all member companies are eligible and there is no competition among members. This is also a great way to benchmark and look at ways to improve your current CSR program.
