(Washington, DC, May 3, 2017)— Association Media & Publishing (AM&P) is excited to announce the recipients of its special awards – the Mitch Mohanna Lifetime Achievement Award and the four Emerging Leader Awards sponsored by Imagination. The awards will be given at the 37th Annual EXCEL Awards on June 26, 2017 at the DoubleTree Crystal City as part of AM&P’s Annual Meeting.
James G. Elliott, president of James G. Elliott Co. will receive the AM&P Mitch Mohanna Lifetime Achievement Award. This special merit award honors an industry service provider who has performed an outstanding service to AM&P and achieved accomplishment spanning a career in association media and publishing. It was founded in 2016 in honor of loyal AM&P member Mitch Mohanna, who passed away in 2015.
"Jim has been an invaluable partner to our industry,” said Mike Winkleman of Leverage Media, LLC and an AM&P Board member. "As a close friend of Mitch Mohanna, Jim was instrumental in the creation of this award in order to honor Mitch's memory and to provide a way to honor other independent service providers who, like Jim and Mitch, bring great value to the industry.”
AM&P’s Emerging Leaders Award sponsored by Imagination honors up-and-coming association publishing and communications professionals under the age of 35. Recipients are individuals who are making a clear impact on their associations and the industry.
This year’s recipients are Matt Davenport, Chemical & Engineering News; Kim Greene, ASCD; Christina Orda Tagle, American Academy of Pediatrics and Meg White, REALTOR® Magazine (National Association of REALTORS®). The Emerging Leaders will attend the Gala and Annual Meeting courtesy of Imagination.
"With more than 20 years of association experience, Imagination understands the needs, obstacles and opportunities that associations face every day to futureproof their success,” said Jim Meyers, CEO of Imagination. "That's why we're proud to once again sponsor the AM&P Emerging Leaders Awards because we know that when it comes to content publishing, it takes Imagination!"
