AAC Awards 2019

Friday 11 October 2019 - Registration for the AAC Awards Ceremony is now closed

At Communication Matters we support and celebrate all forms of communication, the people who use them, the professionals and families that support them and the companies that provide them.

As many of you know, at our annual conference we present two awards in memory of inspiring individuals, Jamie Munro and Alan Martin. These awards not only serve to remember two valued members of our community, but also highlight the achievements and influence of particular individuals through their work or artistic skills.

We know that there are many more individuals, groups and companies who should also be celebrated for their contribution to the world of Augmentative & Alternative Communication (AAC). Communication Matters is preparing to champion these achievements with the first ever AAC Awards to be held at Leeds University on Friday 11th October 2019. Write the date in your diary or put it on your calendar and start counting down to what promises to be a really exciting occasion!
It is no coincidence that the awards will be held in October, which is AAC Awareness Month and we intend to hold the ceremony every two years going forward. The awards will continue our valued partnership with Meet in Leeds, and together we want to raise the profile of AAC in the city and beyond! But, as ever, we need your help! So, if anyone has any contacts, ideas to make the evening go with a bang, connections with potential sponsors, or even just feels like helping out, we want to hear from you. Contact us through the CM Office:
