The American Society of Business Press Editors named Connect one of 10 finalists for its annual Azbee Award for Magazine of the Year in the $3 million and over division. It's the highest honor ASBPE gives during its annual awards, and Connect previously earned this same recognition in 2012. In 2010, Connect earned the national Gold Award for New Publication, the most notable recognition for new magazines. Judges make their decisions after reviewing the editorial and design quality of three consecutive issues. The three issues submitted for Connect the March/April issue that featured our practical and expansive how-to guide, the May/June with our annual 40 Under 40 feature, and the July/August F&B issue. Editors will find out if Connect is one of the top three national award winners in the Magazine of the Year category at the ASBPE National Conference in July in Chicago.
