The City of Alcoa won two awards during the 2007 Annual City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA) Conference held in Kansas City in October. The awards are part of the association’s national Savvy Awards competition.
Competing with entries from government entities across the country, the Award of Excellence was given for the city’s Alcoa Utility Lines in the Printed Publications – External Newsletter category, and for the City Service Guide in the Printed Publications – Resident Guide category.
Contest judges found Alcoa Utility Lines, a quarterly bill insert for the city’s utility customers, to be “concise, useful and informative.” Judges commented that the City Service Guide was “an artfully composed entry that shows an exacting attention to detail and quality production. It is at the same time engaging and informative, successfully meeting its stated communication goals.”
City Manager Mark Johnson said, “The city is honored to have been recognized on a national level for these publications. Allison Slater deserves a lot of credit for working with the internal development team to produce these publications. We are proud to be able to provide these quality products for our citizens and customers.”
