This year’s McSAM Awards competition and event has many new and exciting aspects.
Under the direction of SMC Chair Kelly Hoodwin and McSAM Chair Rich Gardner, McSAM is growing and expanding.
With a team of builder leadership invited to serve on the program’s Advisory committee, their task was to review all categories, requirements, partnerships and overall event. The group shared ideas and suggestions that became the guidelines for this year’s program.

Thoughtful consideration was given to categories to recognize the current product within the marketplace, while allowing for expansion of categories by the judges should entries suggest. Example, if a multitude of entries are submitted in the Best Architecture of an Attached Plan, the judges have the ability to split the category based upon product type; patio homes, townhomes, condominiums. Thus all entries will be considered and placed within a category where it can find the best opportunity for recognition.

Also new this year, a streamlined entry process. The goal is to make submitting your entry simple and easy.
A How To Enter Seminar was held January 17th at the DBA offices. If you missed the program. NO PROBLEM.. Check out the video
