It’s awards season at CompTIA! Fresh on the heels of our UK Spotlight awards in Bristol, we are gearing up for ChannelCon and our ChannelChanger, AWIT Spotlight, and Member of the Year awards. 

The ChannelChanger Award recognizes future leaders who are making their mark within a CompTIA member company, have shown success as an entrepreneur, or have made an impact on the industry. Each year, we are inspired by the young talent this award recognizes. 

The AWIT Spotlight Awards recognize female leadership, guidance, commitment to community and excellence in the technology industry. We put the spotlight on individuals who are shining examples of the leaders we all aspire to be. Within this category, the Cecilia Galvin Scholarship Award, named in memory of former ChannelPro Network Executive Editor Cecilia Galvin, a passionate supporter of women in IT, recognizes an aspiring technology professional with a $5,000 scholarship. 

Finally, the Member of the Year award recognizes a single member who, in the past year, demonstrated outstanding service and impact through their commitment, passion, professionalism and leadership in assisting CompTIA’s mission.

Winners are inspiring examples of professionals working in the business of technology who give their time, leadership and expertise to benefit others and our industry. Join us at ChannelCon as we conclude our 2019 awards season and are inspired by this year’s honorees!
