Town Wins National Communications Award from 3CMA

Post Date:09/29/2017 3:50 PM

The Town of Chapel Hill was honored with a national award recognizing excellence in communications by the City-County Communications and Marketing Association (3CMA).

The award of excellence was presented at 3CMA's Savvy Awards event on Sept. 7, which was held in conjunction with its national annual conference in Anaheim, Calif. The awards recognize the communications and outreach efforts of local governments throughout the United States.

The award was given in the Most Innovative category for the “Communications Dashboard,” which provides a mix of analytics on the performance of Town communication channels. It was created by the Communications and Public Affairs Department’s Ran Northam, a communications specialist for community safety.

3CMA received 698 awards entries this year across 38 categories. 3CMA is the nation's premiere network of local government communicators. The organization was founded in 1988 on the philosophy that communications and marketing are essential to helping governments engage and build stronger relationships with their residents.
