The Web Marketing Association is looking for the best association Websites in the world as part of their 24th annual international WebAward Competition for Web site development at the WebAward Web site. The WebAwards is the standards-defining competition that sets benchmarks for 96 industries, including association websites, based on the seven criteria of a successful Web site. The deadline for advertising web sites to enter to be judged is May 29, 2020.

“Associations are important to almost every industry,” said William Rice, President of the Web Marketing Association. “Their websites should provide a resource for networking and gathering important industry trends and data. Having that aspect of your association website reviewed is just one benefit of participating in the annual WebAward program”.

Web sites are judged on seven criteria including design, innovation, content, technology, interactivity, copy writing and ease of use.
