The United Methodist Association of Communicators (UMAC) is a community of faith disseminating the values of the United Methodist Church based in Nashville, Tennessee. The UMAC solicits awards submissions annually in ten different classes from all across the United States. Due to the fact that UMAC awards attract participants with diverse backgrounds and the organization itself targets multiple communication formats, the submissions are evaluated by judges from all over the USA.
The awards program for UMAC is a source of funding for the association, and one of the main goals of the organization is to share and recognize the work of colleagues. This is why having an effective awards management system in place is crucial.
