Last night, we were honored by the Colorado Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) for our outstanding commitment to the public relations industry and successful special event and social media programs.
MGA’s Nonprofit Buzz team – comprised of Jennifer Watson; Sarah Rasmussen; and Raquel Fuentes – was recognized as the PR Team of the Year, a new award category this year. The award recognizes a team of professionals for generating outstanding results; demonstrating innovation and creativity; creating a positive impact on the communications profession; and exhibiting high professional and ethical standards within the public relations profession.
PRSA Colorado recognized MGA’s team members for their more than three years of work on MGA’s Nonprofit Buzz, a unique series of no-cost communications-focused seminars targeted at Denver-area nonprofits. Through 2010, the Nonprofit Buzz Team had provided training to more than 100 leaders in Denver’s nonprofit community. Through their client and other pro bono work at MGA, the team members continue to make a difference to nonprofits and the greater Denver community.
“We are grateful to have our work, and our clients, recognized by PRSA Colorado,” said Jeff Julin, MGA president. “We are particularly proud of the PR Team of the Year Award. The members of our Nonprofit Buzz team have provided a very valuable service to many organizations that were looking for additional communications training, which they couldn’t afford. MGA strongly believes in supporting the communities in which we live and work.”
In addition to the PR Team of the Year Award, MGA took home the following accolades:
- Silver Pick in the Special Events, Seven Days or Less, Category for “A Vision Fulfilled: Celebrating the Completion of the Remediation at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal.”
- Silver Pick in the Social Media Category for “Social Media Helps CEA in Legislative Battle, April-May 2010,” a program MGA worked on with the Colorado Education Association.
Congratulations to all of last night's winners!
