WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 26, 2020) – In a video ceremony, the Association Media & Publishing (AM&P) celebrated accomplishments in association publishing, honoring four Emerging Leaders, the Mitch Mohanna Lifetime Achievement Award and awarding the EXTRA! Award. The winners were announced following the first day of the AM&P Annual Meeting on October 20th.
“The Emerging Leader and Mitch Mohanna awards showcase the highest standard of excellence at different ends of the spectrum. You have talented, ambitious young people at the beginning of their career being honored, alongside the Mitch Mohanna award recognizing a career of excellence,” said SIIA President Jeff Joseph. “Now more than ever, we must take moments to acknowledge and celebrate successes in our industry.”
This year’s Emerging Leader award winners are:
- Jeff Froustet, Assistant Manager, Metadata Solutions, American Society of Civil Engineers
- Thomas Marcetti, Associate Editor, Kalo Media, LLC
- Nikolle Waffle, Journals Production Editor, American Society of Civil Engineers
- Manny Morone, Lead Production Editor, C&EN, American Chemical Society
The winner of this year’s Mitch Mohanna Lifetime Achievement Award is Marlys Fox. Ms. Fox was recognized as an industry pioneer. She started her own firm more than 50 years ago, and it is the first, largest and longest running female-owned national advertising sales representative in the country. Fox Associates now has offices in New York, Chicago, Detroit and LA, working with partners across the publishing industry and across both print and digital platforms.
The EXTRA! Award is a special recognition; it is awarded at the discretion of a special committee of judges and therefore is not awarded every year. Chosen from among all EXCEL Award recipients honored this spring,, the EXTRA! Award recognizes a winning entry that took bold chances and successfully innovated an association media product. The judges for this award noted that remarkable innovation was shown by this winner in the skillfully resonant content. This recognition was awarded to the story “Uncle Tom’s Cabin in Krakow” from Phi Kappa Phi's Forum magazine. This article was written by Nancy Lusignan Schultz.
“We heartily congratulate all of the winners on their exceptional content, successful initiatives, and impressive career achievements,” said Elena Loveland, Editor-in-Chief at Trusteeship magazine and Chair of the Judging Committee for the special awards. “The winners truly embody the spirit of the awards, which is to continue to exceed industry standards and set new benchmarks for success.”
