America in Bloom (AIB) has been named to the 2010 Associations Advance America (AAA) Honor Roll, a national awards program sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives & The Center for Association Leadership in Washington, D.C.
The prestigious awards program recognizes associations that propel America forward with innovative projects in education, skills training, standards setting, business and social innovation, knowledge creation, citizenship and community service.
The Associations Advance America Awards are presented year-round to recognize associations that propel America forward–with innovative projects in skills training and development; ethical, technical or professional standards; economic development; business and social innovation; information and knowledge creation; public education and information; civic and community volunteer activities; and citizenship and democracy enhancement.
“America in Bloom is honored to be recognized by the American Society of Association Executives & The Center for Association Leadership,” says Marvin Miller, president of the America in Bloom board of directors. “Being selected for the 2010 Associations Advance America Honor Roll is recognition that AIB is a meaningful organization. We are grateful for this recognition as it helps reinforce our resolve to help America plant pride in its communities.”
The AIB program provides participating towns with a framework in which the municipal, residential and commercial sectors can work together to enhance their quality of life. To date, nearly 200 towns in 38 states have participated in the program.
In addition to being named to the Associations Advance America Honor Roll, America in Bloom was honored in 2009 with the American Horticultural Society’s Urban Beautification Award for facilitating beautification programs throughout the United States.
