The BoardRoom magazine "Excellence in Achievement" Awards is the only private club industry award that recognizes the clubs' business partners.

BoardRoom magazine's industry peers review and select these outstanding suppliers and consultants, which represent various aspects of course and club operations. Winners, each year, are selected for overall excellence in their respective fields, achievements, innovation, vision for future growth and continued impact on private club operations.

"Each of the recipients of the BoardRoom magazine "Excellence in Achievement" awards are clearly leaders in their respective industries," said John Fornaro, publisher of the BoardRoom magazine.

The BoardRoom magazine is the only publication of its kind that is designed to educate the board of directors, owners, general managers and department heads of private golf, city, yacht, tennis and country clubs about issues concerning all aspects of the club, golf course management and operations. The magazine is distributed through paid subscriptions to clubs, organizations and businesses throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and Asia.
