The awards part of the event will recognize regional winners in this year's annual Azbees. ASBPE’s Azbee Awards of Excellence program is one of the most competitive there is for business-to-business, trade, association, and professional publications. The awards recognize outstanding work by magazines, newsletters, and digital media — Web sites, e-newsletters, digital magazines, and blogs. The competition is open to all U.S.-based publications. ASBPE membership is not required for entry, but members receive a discount on entry fees. In 2009, ASBPE began holding separate Print and Digital Azbee Awards programs. The digital awards operate on a later schedule than the print awards.
This year’s featured speaker is Paul Teague, a 19-year veteran of Cahners and Reed Business Information. A Neal Award winner, he was most recently editor of Purchasing. Previously, he had been editor and national editor of Design News and also served a term as cochairman of the Cahners Chief Editors Advisory Board. Paul will speak about the history of this important publishing organization and its many alums that have seeded the communications industry nationwide. Reed/Cahners vets are encouraged to join us!
ASBPE Boston/New England chapter welcomes members and nonmembers. In particular, we are inviting participation by Media Chowder – a local media networking group – as well as members of the Society of Professional Journalists.
Event details will be posted soon.
