Did you remember that Region 2 offers a "Best Newsletter Award" to local societies? Any group who provides copies of their newsletters to the Regional President, Regional Publicity Director and Editor are considered for this annual award!! A gorgeous glass, engraved trophy is awarded to the winner at the banquet of the Summer Meeting!
Voting criteria includes diversity and quality of content, timeliness of information, timeliness and consistency of publication. It may also include graphic layout, incorporation of pertinent photos, and incorporation of other graphics (logos, etc.)
I have only received newsletters from 3 clubs for 2009.
If you are interested in having your local societies newsletter considered for the 2009 award, please forward copies, to the three of us immediately. Contact me for email addresses, or see the regional website. If you need our mailing addresses, please check the latest newsletter.
If you believe your club has already submitted newsletters for consideration, please email me to confirm receipt.
