From the Desk
Our firm has been buzzing with excitement. Right now, we're celebrating Barb’s selection for the Lifetime Achievement Award by the Public Relations Society of America. She's an industry leader who has exhibited extraordinary achievements and demonstrated outstanding leadership in the field of public relations. With over 30 years in the field, Barb is a thought leader and we're honored to work alongside her.
We're also thrilled that our client work is being recognized for outstanding accomplishments on behalf of our clients. From our execution of an advanced direct marketing campaign to leading a rebrand and managing a grand opening event, PRSA has nominated the following Clapp Communications projects for professional awards:
- Len the Plumber's magnet postcard campaign
- Maryland Philanthropy Network's rebrand process
- Springwell Senior Living's grand opening of The Homestead
We do this work to see our clients succeed, but it's nice to see our efforts recognized by industry peers. We only deliver the highest quality work and we're grateful we’re able to do what we love for clients we care so much about.
It has truly been a stellar year. It's been a little while since our last newsletter, so please bear with us as we share a lot of exciting updates in this edition.
Have a great Thanksgiving—relax, and enjoy time with loved ones!
