Golden Key Awards: Oh What a Night!

Posted By: Chip Tatum Membership,

In the words of the Four Seasons, "Oh What a Night!"

Personally, the Golden Key Awards event is one of my favorites of the year!  It's the one time of year where we can spotlight how amazing the people, teams, and companies involved in our association and our industry really are.  I cannot believe that this past weekend's event was our 9th and that so many of our members (and my team) have been to all of them!  What started out as an event that drew just about 300 people has now grown to 1,000 attendees.  Incredible!

I don't know about you, but as I look through all the awesome photo booth and ballroom photos, I think to myself..."Self, our members are fun and DANG, they really clean up nice!"  If you haven't already, take a look.  You and your friends had an AWESOME time.  As a thanks to all of our attendees, these high-quality photos of you and your team are available for you to download, compliments of AAGO and our event sponsors.

Once again, I had the chance to Co-Emcee with my brother from another mother, the self-proclaimed "MC Golden Key" or as he is more commonly known, Russ Webb (AAA/GAA).  We are so grateful that he contributes his time and energy to us so willingly and with so much enthusiasm.  You rock, Mr. Webb!

In closing, thanks so much to all of you who nominated a worthy team member, team, property or company!  We can't hand out awards to everyone, and I can tell you that selecting from amongst such an impressive pool of nominees is really tough for our cadre of judges.  If you or your team was nominated, you should be proud and celebrate your success!  

Another HUGE thank you to all of our Key, Photo Booth, Platinum, and Gold sponsors.  This event truly would not be possible without your support and we are extremely appreciative!


But first, lemme take a selfie!
