The Association Media & Publishing Excel Awards are the Oscars of non-profit publishing, and CPA Canada’s Member News is one of only two publications recognized for general excellence in digital newsletters. The bronze award for best content, editing, design and overall packaging was presented at a gala event in Washington, D.C., in June. The Excel Awards is the largest and most prestigious awards program recognizing excellence and leadership in non-profit association media, publishing, marketing and communications. Judges reviewed more than 870 entries and recognized 227 entries in seven broad categories. The Excel Award is in addition to the COPA (Canadian Online Publishing Award) that Member News received last fall.
