    The Sales & Marketing Council presents the 43rd Annual Major Achievement in Marketing Excellence Awards. MAME recognizes our industry's most outstanding builder, sales, marketing, and trade professionals who have distinguished themselves by working hard to deliver their best each day for the betterment of our industry.

    In today's ever changing world, the SMC would like to continue to honor our industry through our awards show, but would like to be sensitive to all the different comfort levels of gathering in person. A viewing party under the stars will allow us to do just that. Join us as we gather and social distance, as needed, under the summer night sky at the Alameda County Fairgrounds Drive-In in Pleasanton. Yes! We will be gathering in person for an old fashion drive in "movie" at the fairgrounds.

    Whatever your comfort level is, you will have the opportunity to stay in your car, bring chairs to sit outside your car OR mix and mingle with your mask.

    There is limited space available at the drive in, so purchase early before it sells out.

    Congratulations again to all the finalists for this year's 43rd MAME. Download the full list HERE.
