Created in 1997, the ACE Awards (Award for Circulation Excellence) were established by the CMC to recognize and celebrate the excellent circulation work being done in the Canadian publishing industry. The CMC's mission is "To provide professional development, promote fellowship within the circulation profession, and to raise the profile of circulation professionals by rewarding outstanding achievement."
Our judging panel consistently comments on how impressed they have been by the strategic and marketing innovation displayed. Canadian circulators are both effectively refining proven tools, as well as showing innovative thinking in developing new concepts. Awards will be presented at the annual CMC Luncheon, part of the 2013 Magnet conference, June 4-7th.
Circulation professionals show off your best work and apply. Circulation management, encourage your brightest to apply. Join us as we celebrate excellence in Canadian circulation.
