*** IABC Chairman’s Award:

Adrian Cropley, ABC*, the 2011-2012 chair of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) has selected both, Claire Watson, ABC*, and Mary Hills, ABC*, as the recipients of this year’s Chairman’s Award. Watson and Hills are scheduled to accept the award at IABC’s World Conference in Chicago on 24 June 2012.

Each year, the IABC chair honors one or more members who have worked selflessly behind the scenes to enhance the association’s image, facilitate member development and benefit the communication profession. Any current IABC member who has belonged to the association for at least five years is eligible for the award.

“I am proud to have Claire and Mary as the 2012 Chairman’s Award winners. They have dedicated themselves to serving IABC at every opportunity and are brilliant communication professionals,” Cropley said. “Mary’s work with the accreditation program from the chapter to the international level, particularly championing new initiatives like the Corporate Accreditation program globally has allowed accreditation to grow and truly be the global standard for Communication professionals. Claire’s work across multiple IABC programs, especially the Gold Quill Awards, accreditation and most recently her work on developing and rolling out certification training for award, has shown staggering results in setting the standard for awards. Both Claire and Mary are tireless leaders for IABC and I look forward to honoring both of them at the World Conference in Chicago in June.”

OK, so just where is this Cessnock, Oklahoma? As a native Oklahoman, I’ve never heard of the place and there are parts of the Sooner State where a burg with 11,558 souls would be considered a major city – say out in the Panhandle. I know Sallisaw, Henryetta, Wagoner, Catoosa and I know you have to go through Bowlegs to get to Maud. But Cessnock? Does sound Indian enough.

Greetings from Geneva, where today we finally have some lovely sunshine!

Could you please include the following request in Monday’s edition?

Many thanks!

Beatrice Bernescut:

REQUESTING BETA-READERS

My organization is currently in the process of writing its new brochure. As we are not particularly well known (at least in the States), I would like to do a sort of “virtual focus group” on this new text. Essentially, the aim is to find out if the new brochure 1) clearly explains the role and purpose of the organization; 2) uses language which is sufficiently clear and easy to understand; and 3) defines the grant-making process. This will be a rapid turnaround situation – any volunteers would need to read, review and comment within 2 days. If you are interested, please drop me a line at beatriceb@global.t-bird.edu

Many thanks for your help!
