 Cassies Nominations

It’s that time again: nomination season for this year’s Cassie Awards has officially opened! A time honored tradition at the Cascade User Conference, the Annual Cassies Awards Ceremony recognizes those organizations and individuals that have achieved exceptional accomplishments with their websites and Cascade Server. Each year sees fierce competition as the nominees hope to win one of the highly coveted trophies, and 2015 will be no different. In fact, with an ever increasing community of Cascade Server powered websites, the stakes are higher than ever.

Nominations for the 2015 Cassie Awards will be open from June 2 - July 10. Afterward, the exclusive Cassies Committee will meticulously review all of the nominations and select the finalists based on the reasons provided for each nominee. Incomplete nominations will not be eligible, so please be sure to provide at a short paragraph to pitch your nomination. Finalists will be announced and voting opened to select this year’s winner on July 17. Voting will close on August 14 and the lucky (and astonishingly talented) winners will be announced on September 21 during the User Conference’s Monday Night Social Event.

Please feel free to nominate yourself and your organization! You’ve worked hard on your website all year, and it’s time to toot your own horn a little. You deserve it. Of course, you may also nominate other Cascade Server customers. There’s certainly no shortage of innovative sites to choose from.

Here are the Classic Cassies categories:

  • Lightning Bolt - Since the 2014 User Conference, which new customer was the quickest in rolling out a new site using Cascade Server?

  • Customer MVP - Which Cascade Server customer has been the most helpful to other customers on the listserv, support site, on social media, usergroup, or other avenues?

  • Hannon Hill MVP - Which Hannon Hill team member has been the most helpful in answering your questions, participating on the support forum, engaging on social media, and just providing all around ridiculously good customer service?

  • Biggest Fan of Cascade Server - Which individual client loves Cascade Server so much they've tried to get their mother to buy it? In other words, who is our biggest customer advocate?

  • Head of the Class - Which new Cascade Server client has been the quickest in getting up to speed in learning and using Cascade Server?

  • Most Creative Use of Cascade Server - What is the most innovative thing that a client has implemented this year using Cascade Server?

  • Best New Site - Which customer rolled out the best new site since the last user conference?

  • Most Successful Site - Which Cascade Server powered site has been the most successful? Success can be measured in search engine rankings, increased traffic, conversion rates for prospects, or any other quantifiable metric.

  • Best Use of COPE (Create Once, Publish Everywhere) - What organization has made the most extensive use of COPE? This could be reusing content across pages and sites in the system or reusing content across applications. What external applications have you integrated with Cascade Server? How are you making creative use of the API?
