Hooray for Barbara! Hooray for Convene!

Last night our own Barbara Palmer took home a Gold Award as part of Association Media & Publishing's EXCEL competition, which every year honors the best in association magazines, newsletters, websites, books, and other publications. Barbara won for "7 Days in Port-au-Prince," the amazing Leading by Example article she wrote about her visit to Haiti with an organization called Healing Hands for Haiti last March.

If you haven't read it yet, do it right now. If you have, read it again. And join us in congratulating Barbara for this well-deserved honor.

And congratulations to our design team -- Mitch Shostak and Roger Greiner of Shostak Studios -- for taking home a Silver Award for the cover of our February 2010 issue. At a time when the Twitter Revolution was already in the rearview mirror, they helped us find something new to say about, as our cover lines put it, #SocialMedia&Meetings. And the package of stories this cover fronted -- collectively headlined "Do We Have Your Attention?"-- was pretty darn good, too. Isn't it great when pictures and words work together like that?

As I've heard that the coveted EXCEL Award Gala is the pinnacle of peer recognition and the seal of excellence in association publishing right?
