I have had the pleasure of being an IABC/Toronto Board Member now for a few years. I have taken advantage of the many IABC member benefits including the professional development seminars and networking sessions to help continue to grow in my career as a communication professional. This year, I tried something new and volunteered to judge the annual IABC/Toronto OVATION Awards. It was an incredibly rewarding experience and I would highly recommend it for any IABC member who has not yet taken advantage of this unique professional development, networking and learning opportunity.
For 35 years, the IABC/Toronto OVATION Awards have been recognizing and celebrating excellence in the communications industry. As a judge, I was honoured to be a part of the experience this year to review and score a variety of award submissions from leading Toronto and Canadian companies. It was like getting a special VIP back-stage pass to the best of the best in communications by reading how industry leaders across the numerous categories designed, developed and launched these innovative campaigns.
On behalf of the IABC/Toronto Board, I would like to thank all the OVATION Awards judges this year for their incredible support and outstanding commitment to the ongoing success of these awards judging virtually in these very challenging times. I look forward to joining the virtual award celebrations on May 7, 2020 to recognize the deserving award recipients this year.
