On June 17, the American Society of Association Executives awarded the Association for
Corporate Growth its prestigious “Power of A Summit Award” for ACG’s GrowthEconomy.
org research project. The Summit Award is ASAE’s highest, given to associations that make
exemplary commitments to “solve problems, advance industry/professional performance,
kick-start innovation and improve world conditions.”
GrowthEconomy.org was originally developed to give visibility to the impact of private
capital investment in Main Street companies, resulting in more U.S. jobs and revenue; it
demonstrates that companies with this backing typically outperform privately held com-
panies lacking such investment. Mostly important, GrowthEconomy.org helps ACG tell the
story of private capital in a compelling way, showing that private equity is a major driver of
jobs and sales growth in nearly every region of the United States.
