PAMA members win big

PAMA members were well represented in IFAI’s 2010 International Achievement Awards (IAA).  Twenty-eight PAMA member companies submitted a total of 67 entries. Award-winning projects from C.E.

Winning awards from a juried competition sponsored by a professional association gives companies credibility, sets them apart from the competition, and provides a meaningful story for promoting their products and services. PAMA encourages members to participate in the IAA competition. The entry deadline for the 2011 competition is July 15, 2011. Visit for information and to submit.

The IAA competition is also seeking judges. Contact IAA manager Christine Malmgren at +1 651 225 6926 or email if you would like to be considered or to recommend someone. Judges receive one CEU for certification qualification or certification renewal.
