About AVSA Show Awards
The AVSA Show Awards Fund supplements the AVSA Awards and ensures that more individuals receive some compensation for their efforts. Many exhibitors work for a full year and travel many miles to participate in the AVSA Convention Show. Affiliates and individuals are invited to support their efforts.
Donations are particularly needed to underwrite Best in Class awards but may be designated for other achievements as well. Donors will be acknowledged when each award is presented. Please contact the Awards Chair at email@example.com with questions.
