2018 Awards for Excellence Winners

The judges for the 2018 SUNYCUAD Awards for Excellence have made their selections. In all, more than 50 winners have been chosen from across the system!

However — new this year — our winners don’t know what they’ve won… they only know they’ve won something.

So, join us at the 2018 conference to cheer on your colleagues during this year’s awards ceremony, set for June 7 (Day 2), in the breathtaking Grand Ballroom of the Marriott Syracuse Downtown, overlooking the city. Together we will discover who this year’s Best of Category honorees are!

In the meantime, to see this year’s cream of the crop, visit our awards page.

Also, would you like extra copies of your award for your office, home or other colleagues? You can order those here. All orders must be in by May 31.

Lastly, whether or not you are among this year’s honorees, please take a moment to share your feedback here. Your input is invaluable as we continuously improve the awards process every year.

Congratulations again to all of our winners on this achievement. You and your teams should be very proud of your success!

We hope to see you at the beautifully restored Marriott Syracuse Downtown this June!

*Day rates are also available. Visit our registration page to learn more!

P.S.: If you’ve won but are unable to attend this year’s conference, contact us and we will be sure to make arrangements to get your award(s) to you after the event.
