The Association for Corporate Growth® (ACG), the global organization focused on driving middle-market growth, has been awarded with a gold and bronze honor from the 2013 Association TRENDS All-Media Contest. The media projects were two of nearly 470 entries in the association publication contest.
The Association TRENDS announced the winners of its 2013 All-Media Contest this past week. The contest is held annually and is a competition recognizing the most creative and effective communication vehicles developed in the industry over the prior year. The competition, held exclusively for associations, included a record 467 entries in 22 categories of association communications.
ACG won a gold award for its InterGrowth 2013 Onsite Guide in the Convention Program category. InterGrowth is ACG’s signature annual event which brings together the M&A dealmakers to experience the business-building power of the ACG community.
