Every year, Naylor Association Solutions
recognizes its top projects – based not just on the monetary value, but the overall value to the association and the internal workings that go into the products. The award with probably the toughest competition is the national award, which is why SPFA’s recognition in this department was even more outstanding. For 2014, SPFA
’s magazine, SPRAYFOAM Professional
, earned the Naylor National Publication of the Year award, competing against hundreds of other publications and associations.
"This is super news and we appreciate so much what Naylor does to assist us in our goals," said SPFA Executive Director Kurt Riesenberg.
The awards, which are officially called the President’s Excellence Awards, recognize the culmination and representation of the service and quality that Naylor provides for its association partners in their magazines.
There are five awards to recognize excellence in the design, content and success of each product. The criteria for each award are: that the project is viewed as the most successful and useful in the eyes of the association; and that the project
serves as the best example of Naylor via great execution and high quality.
"Via its magazine and other communications, SPFA does an excellent job of sharing industry-related news with its members, securing support for the industry and increasing the awareness of SPF’s benefits," said Naylor’s Vice President of Content Jill Andreu.
