SLMA – RASD PR & Marketing Committee Award Deadline Nears

As we head into August, I want to remind all Public and Academic librarians to consider applying for the SLMA Award. The deadline is 9/15/18. The award is a countywide recognition of the best PR and Marketing campaigns done from 9/16/17 through 9/15/18. You can enter any marketing  campaign or event done at your library after 9/15/17. The awards will be given out at the SCLA Dinner in November.
The Suffolk Library Marketing Award recognizes the Best Public Relations Marketing Campaign by a Public or Academic Library in Suffolk County, a commission of the Public Relations and Marketing Committee of the Reference and Adult Services Division of the Suffolk County Library Association, a Regional Chapter of the New York Library Association.

The application process is easy and the pride in your accomplishments will be great. Become the library that houses the SLMA Plaque for the next year!
