“Communications is a crucial function for any association – it’s the primary means for sharing information with members and staff,” said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, CAE. “Winners of the Gold Circle Award competition have set a high bar of excellence for us in the association community by integrating the fundamentals of effective communications with elements of innovation, creativity, design, technology, and metrics to measure the effectiveness of their tactics.
