Nomination Deadline: 10/20/17

The CMAcclaim Award brings national recognition to an individual, ensemble, or organization whose work has had a significant impact on a local or regional community, and does not normally receive national media attention.


Any CMA member may make a nomination, but the nominee need not be a CMA member. Self-nominations or nominations by staff or Board members of the organization to be nominated are not eligible.
