Honor Your “Best and Brightest”

What is the Sales & Marketing Excellence Award?

The Sales & Marketing Excellence Award (SMEA) program is an opportunity for Central New York organizations to honor their “best and brightest” employees.

Since 1977, Central New York Sales & Marketing Executives (CNYSME) has been recognizing excellence in the sales and marketing profession at their Annual Crystal Ball / SMEA Banquet where Sales & Marketing Excellence Award recipients are publicly honored by their organizations and CNYSME.
