Awards Information

Bringing back the improved, faster nomination process!

The Circle of Excellence Awards has 28 different nomination categories ranging from individual awards to apartment community/company awards to vendors categories. Each nomination category requires different supporting documentation. Nominations submitted without the supporting documents will not be eligible for judging or able to receive an award.

The awards are judged by prestigious apartment industry experts who are known nationwide. Each nomination category is reviewed by multiple, hand-selected judges. Each judge completes their own scoring matrix, which is collectively evaluated and added up. The nominee then with the highest overall score wins the award for that category.

Nomination Criteria checklists are provided for each nomination category. This checklist will include details regarding the specific criteria for each nomination and provide the scoring matrix that corresponds with each nomination. If supporting documents are not submitted towards the specific criteria, the nomination will not receive the points for that category.

SEFAA Gives Back

This season SEFAA’s Community Service Committee is partnering with the Heart Gallery of Broward to bring smiles to children in the foster care system by collecting Holiday presents! A donation station will be set up at COE to collect any new, unused, and unwrapped gift or toy for a child.

The Heart Gallery of Broward County develops and implements programs such as events, fundraisers, summits, photo galleries and kiosks displays, as well as activity days for the children to help promote and raise awareness about foster care and adoption, and child advocacy. Its biggest occasion is the annual National Adoption Day celebration, which has instituted historic rates for both the county and the state. It also holds program days for foster children with the interested families looking to adopt and take photographs of the children to post on our website. These interactions have helped to facilitate and accelerate the adoption and the hope is to host more per quarter.

Wish list coming soon!
