Nominate A Friend & Colleague for Communicator of the Year

An IABC Cleveland tradition since 2005, the Communicator of the Year (COY) is a way for you - a member of our professional community - to honor an individual within NEO who has demonstrated excellence in communication leadership. This individual does not have to be an IABC member. We've celebrated eight extraordinary individuals to date, including Thomas Mulready (CoolCleveland); Thom Ruhe (JumpStart); Kimberly St. John-Stevenson (Saint Luke's Foundation); Mark Crowley (National City Corp.); Robin Ratliff (Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland); Bruce Hennes (Hennes-Paynter Crisis Communications); and Anthony Alexander (FirstEnergy).

We have so much talent worth acknowledging within our communications, marketing, advertising, design, internal communications, public relations and journalism community. Please give some thought to nominating a peer, as we seek to celebrate their accomplishments at our November 6 year-end celebration. 

Visit our COY page for more information and the nomination application. Applications are due by Friday, October 17.

Thank you for your consideration and helping us to continue this worthwhile tradition.
