Welcome to another edition of the Web Marketing Association's Interactive Briefing Newsletter.
WebAward 2010 Update
I am pleased to report that the awards for the winners of the 2010 WebAward competition have been sent to each of the winners. If you had won a WebAward, you should be receiving your Statue (best of industry winners) and Certificate of Achievement (Outstanding and Standard of Excellence winners)within the next few days if you have not already done so. Winners outside the USA will take slightly longer because of customs and shipping requirements.
Additional awards are be ordered at the WMA Recognition Center. Personalized awards are a great way to reward team members or yourself for a job well done. It's also a great way to provide a constant reminder to clients and senior management about your success.
Be Bold Be Bald
On October 22, 2010, please join us and wear a bald cap all day to show solidarity with cancer patients, raise awareness to effects of this devastating illness and raise money for charity. For a small fee ($15) you will receive your own bald cap, a tee-shirt and information on how you can help make a difference.
The Web Marketing Association has created a team for the online marketing community to help this wonderful cause. Click here to learn more and join the "I Can Make A Difference" team and receive your own Be Bold Be Bald kit.
Bold, Be Bald! was created by Small Army for a Cause, a 501c3 organization founded by members of Small Army (an advertising, marketing and creative services agency) in Boston, Massachusetts. The organization was launched in honor of Mike Connell, co-founder and former Creative Principal of Small Army, who lost his battle with cancer in 2007. Mike was an active member of the WMA and he is missed by all who knew him.
