The Association of German Tool and Moldmakers, VDWF, received a prize in the “Reform and Management” category of the “Association of the year” award by the German Society for Association Management (DGVM).

They were only one micron away from taking the first place spot on the podium. Nontheless, the smiles of

VDWF President, Professor Thomas Seul, and Managing Director, Ralf Dürrwächter, were proud and content during the evening ceremonial event held on 12 March in Berlin as part of the 16th in the "Association of the Year 2018" competition.

“The ability of an association to transform its members into fans is exactly what it takes for successful association management and growth,” the jury's assessment states. “Topics that are often problems for other associations seem to be dealt with playfully at the VDWF.” According to the DGVM, this includes that the association involves young up-and-coming entrepreneurs in their association work or the association's study courses that have been successfully set-up in co-operation with Schmalkalden University. As DGVM Vice-President Dr. Winfried Eggers said it in his laudatory speech: “We are excited about your solidarity in your association that stimulates business activity through cohesion and the sharing of knowledge.”

This is reason enough for Thomas Seul to classify the placement as a constructive and positive achievement: “This reflects on us very favorably. Our members in particular can be very proud of the exposure we have gained from this nomination. I am pleased to receive this 'award' as a badge of achievement.”
