In an effort to acknowledge the excellent work of states in their individual ACDA newsletter publications, and to promote the continual betterment of such publications to the benefit of state memberships, the National Board of ACDA has unanimously endorsed the giving of two awards for outstanding newsletters. These awards will be in the form of a plaque, to be presented every other year at the ACDA National Conference.
The following guidelines have been approved by the National Board.
1. The state newsletter award will be administered by the Coordinator of State and Division Newsletters.
To aid us in this process, please send with your publications a sheet stating the circulation of the newsletter, the press run of each publication, the budget per publication, the number of issues per year, and the number and responsibilities of the newsletter staff. It is expected that all states will participate in this evaluation.
Six (6) copies of two (2) representative issues from this current calendar year should be sent to: The Coordinator of State and Division Newsletters, 545 Couch Drive, Oklahoma City, OK 73102.
Timetable: Winners will be announced at the biennial National Conference.
Any questions concerning any aspects of the procedure should be referred to the Coordinator of State and Division Newsletters.
