***  Gold Quill 2015

 

It’s time for the 2015 IABC Gold Quill Awards and a chance to reflect on the great work you do as communication professionals, teams and agencies around the world.

 

This year’s program challenges you to reach for the stars! Show us the strategies, programs and tactics that helped deliver success for your organization and allow us to acknowledge that world-class effort and achievement.

 

The IABC Gold Quill Awards recognize the breadth and depth of the communication professional’s role. Awards are offered in categories that span the gamut of communication management, skills, research and training. And just as important as winning awards, we know our entrants use this opportunity to get feedback from senior evaluators that can lead to continuous improvement and professional development.

 

There are a few key changes to this year’s program that you should be aware of:

 

  1. We’ve moved up deadlines. The early bird deadline is 12 November 2014 while final entries must be submitted by 7 January 2015. This will allow us time to evaluate entries and inform winners well in advance of our Gold Quill Gala being held at the IABC World Conference in San Francisco in June.
  2. We’ve made it simpler to submit an entry into the Communication Skills Division. The new Communication Skills division allows you to simply fill in an online form along with your work sample.
  3. We’ll recognize global agencies and teams “of the year.” Imagine your agency, corporate communication team or not-for-profit communication team being named one of the best of 2015. These organizations and teams will be showcased at our Awards Gala and can promote their earned status globally.

 

More information on the program and these changes are available in the Gold Quill brochure and website (http://gq.iabc.com/). We also encourage you to review the Midas Touch Guide to create your submission and understand how it will be judged.

 

The IABC Gold Quill Awards are the premier global awards program for communication professional. Don’t miss this chance to be celebrated and showcased along with all of our Communication All-Stars.

 

Kind Regards,

Priya Bates, ABC, MC

***  Out for Blood

 

The pursuit of life for the wounded on the fighting fronts of World War II

by Anastasia Kirby Lundquist

 

Blood and plasma may be the greatest gift of the “Greatest Generation”-their life’s blood given back at home for the wounded on the fighting front. They sent more than a million pints to war! And we will never know how many men and women walk the world today – or will do so in generations to come – because the life of a father or grandfather was saved by one of those gifts of a blood donor during World War II.

 

A radio show called Life to the Front, broadcast weekly over WEEI, the Columbia Broadcasting System’s New England network outlet in Boston, helped keep alive the connection between the home front and the fighting fronts.

 

Each week the broadcast was dedicated “To all the men of the armed forces of the United States… who – on every fighting front in the world – daily risk their lives in the service of their country……that they might live.”

 

Out for Blood includes first-hand accounts of actual participants in some of the war’s toughest battles, and features actual scripts from Life to the Front.

35.)  Corporate Marketing and Communications Manager, Sunrise Senior Living, Mclean, VA

https://jobs.washingtonpost.com/job/35666415/corporate-marketing-and-communications-manager/

 

***  From Adam Sidel:

 

36.)  Programming Assistant – Special Events (Temp on-site; 4 to 6 mos.+), Brainstorm Creative Resources, Washington, DC.

 

OVERVIEW:

 

Brainstorm Creative Resources is a recruiting and staffing firm that places creative and editorial professionals into freelance and full-time positions with employers in and around Washington, DC.

 

Please read the job description below and/or visit http://brainstormresources.com/ApplyOnline/ for additional information regarding our firm and currently open positions with our clients.

 

DESCRIPTION:

 

A well established advocacy and lobbying organization with a focus on international affairs is looking to engage an Assistant Project Manager with experience working around live events, in a long-term temporary assignment that will be focused on developing programming for a slate or regional events.

 

We are ideally looking for an early career self-starter who brings some relevant practical knowledge, an interest in learning and growing in the role, and a willingness to jump in to help with any event production task.

 

A general outline of the role includes:

 

* Assist in the production, coordination, and execution of events

* Project manage scripts, assets, and videos created for events

 

Some specific responsibilities will include:

 

* Work with team members to develop production timelines

* Help run event sessions

* Contribute to writing of first draft speaker scripts

* Coordinate onsite rehearsal of talent

* Pull together assets and videos prior to events

* Coordinate onsite A/V

 

While this position is not being offered as a temporary-to-permanent opportunity, the possibility exists for a transition to a full-time role if the assignment goes very well.

 

Brainstorm Creative Resources has supported this client for many years and has helped them identify some amazing people for programming / conference-related roles. Several of the individuals we have placed with this organization were hired into full-time positions. The Assistant Project Manager will work with an existing team of talented and dedicated marketing, communications and events production professionals.

 

HOURS / LOCATION:

 

This is an on-site role. Almost all work will be done at the organization’s offices in NW, DC.

 

Over the long term we expect the hours for this role to be “normal” — so, at least 40 hours/week on a 9am to 6pm schedule. However, our client has told us that the early fall months will be busy, and so availability to work up to 50 hours/week September through October would be ideal. Additionally, as this role focuses on events, some (but not much) weekend work will be required. Specifically, there may be a need for you to travel on 11/2 and 11/3.

 

Brainstorm pays an overtime rate of time-and-a-half to all employees who work more than 40/hours during any given week.

 

The employer’s offices are easily accessible via car, Metrorail and Metrobus.

 

RATE:

 

This is a terrific role for an early career individual who has already demonstrated a sincere interest in event / production management. We are suggesting a rate range of between $18 and $25/hour, which we believe is in-line with the position requirements. We would be happy to consider individuals who bring a bit more experience than necessary to the table, but the rate range offered will remain tied to the position requirements.

 

The actual rate offered will be commensurate with your experience and largely based on the following factors: credentials as detailed in your resume, your interview experiences with Brainstorm Creative Resources and/or our client, and quality of reference providers and references provided.
