As the best and the brightest from some of the most innovative technology companies around the world gathered in San Francisco, Neighborhood America was not only at the table - they were on center stage accepting the award for the industry's ' Best Social Networking Solution.'
Honored by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the CODiE Awards celebrate outstanding developments in software, digital information and education technology. With a 23 year history, the CODiEs remain the only peer-reviewed awards within the software and content industries.
