Association for Accounting Marketing announces Marketing Achievement Award winners

The Association for Accounting Marketing distributed 37 Marketing Achievement Awards (AAM-MAAs) to 24 different firms in recognition of their outstanding achievements in the areas of accounting marketing and communications. 

A panel of judges, including professionals in advertising, consulting, professional services, and marketing, judged nearly 150 entries from 60 different firms in 20 different categories. Accounting firms from all over the United States and Canada competed in two divisions - under $15 million in revenue and more than $15 million in revenue. Categories included Web site design, collateral/identity materials, niche business development, and print advertising for CPA firms. 

This was the 16th year that the annual awards were presented. Recipients were announced at the 21st Annual Conference, Building Strong Foundations for Firm Success, held last month in Washington, D.C.
