ACC Community Bridges Award Policies and Procedure

Name:   ACC Community Bridges Award

Purpose: To recognize outstanding partner organizations and individual partners in cable communications and public affairs projects and to increase outside recognition of the cable industry’s efforts in public affairs and corporate responsibility

Awarded: During FORUM, ACC's annual educational conference

ACC Community Bridges Award Categories

Partner Organization at the local level or national level
Individual Partner

Nomination Process

In the fall, ACC will invite its members to nominate a partner organization or individual.  The simple application process will consist of three questions:  Who are you nominating?  How do you work with this individual or organization?  Why should this nominee win the award?

In addition, Beacon Award judges will be invited to nominate partners described in Beacon Award entries for the Bridges Award the following year. There will be a line at the bottom of the Beacon Award judging form where judges can indicate that they would like to nominate a certain entry and partner involved in a particular project for the award.  It will look like this:

ACC Community Bridges Award     ƒ Yes              ƒ No
Name of Partner: _______________________

This award recognizes the exceptional efforts and input from a non-cable industry partner in a public affairs initiative.

ACC will review all the nominated entries and determine which entries/partners should be passed on to the final judging committee to review.  For those nominees stemming from past Beacon Awards entries, this will be partially based on the overall score of the Beacon Award entry and the depth of the involvement of the partner.

Judging Committee

The Award Committee will include individuals in the following ACC leadership positions:  current ACC President and two Beacon Award co-chairs

Judging Criteria

Winners must be able to attend the award ceremony to accept the award.

Judging Procedure

Committee will vote for their top choice for the award(s).  In the event of a tie, ACC will ask the judging committee members to revote.
