Communications team recognized
The work of Memorial’s Marketing and Communications team has received rave reviews from provincial and national organizations.
The Canadian Council for the Advancement of Education (CCAE) recently tagged several Marketing and Communications projects for honours. At its annual conference in Charlottetown, P.E.I., the CCAE awarded Memorial the gold award for the best institutional website, another gold award for the MUNdays 2006 celebration, and a silver award for the Research Report.
Memorial launched its new presence on the web in December. The site reflects the new institutional brand which itself was launched last spring. MUNdays is an annual series of events at both the Corner Brook and St. John’s campuses that embraces creativity, diversity, community service and leadership at Memorial University. The Research Report is a comprehensive annual report on research activity at Memorial.
The CCAE is the professional association for educational advancement professionals.
Meanwhile, the provincial chapter of the International Association of Business Communicators (IABC) also singled out Marketing and Communications at a recent awards ceremony.
The IABC held its Pinnacle Awards ceremony May 24 in St. John’s, recognizing the best in business communications in Newfoundland and Labrador.
Memorial took home four awards, including the 2007 Communications Professional Award of Excellence which went to the manager of communications, Ivan Muzychka.
The prestigious award recognizes a communicator who “practices exemplary communications and encourages communication excellence in the activities and initiatives in which he/she is involved.”
Mr. Muzychka said he was honoured to have received this award from his peers.
“I also think it is a reflection on the team that I work with in the Division of Marketing and Communications and people from other departments within the university who help me fulfill my duties,” he added.
Memorial also won in the Annual Reports category for the 2006 president’s report.
A collaboration between Marketing and Communications and the Office of Student Recruitment won in the Brochures/Special Publications category for Student Recruitment’s Viewbook 2007.
The Communicator, Memorial’s employee newsletter, won an award of merit in the Newsletters category.
The IABC is an international network of communications professionals. There are 13,000 members in over 70 countries.
