The pandemic did stop us from recognizing excellence last year! Because of the hard work, cheerful encouragement, and ENORMOUS patience from our members we created a virtual celebration for DMAW’s foundational annual event. We had hoped that we would be in-person this year, but we will have another year of virtual festivity.

We won’t be able to gather together to celebrate, but we post the winners in the Digital Program Book on the DMAW website. Winners will receive their GOLD, SILVER & BRONZE Awards via UPS shortly after the Virtual MAXIs Event in November.

We thank you for your consistent patience and your unflagging support. Let me underline that We could not do this without you!
