APS a Finalist in Two Categories for Association Media & Publishing’s 38th Annual EXCEL Awards

I Spy Physiology blog and APS Benefits Me campaign recognized

Rockville, Md. (June 7, 2018)—The American Physiological Society (APS) was announced as a finalist in two categories for Association Media & Publishing’s (AM&P) Annual EXCEL Awards, which recognize the best and brightest in association media and publishing. APS was recognized for its work created in 2017 in the Digital Media–Blog (Overall) category for the I Spy Physiology blog and in the Promotional Content–Advertising Campaign (Membership) category for the APS Benefits Me campaign (#APSBenefitsMe). 300 finalists were selected from 841 entries.

APS is honored to be recognized among other leaders in association media and publishing as finalists for two EXCEL Awards. “We are especially proud to be acknowledged for two initiatives that focus on what makes APS so special: our members,” said Veronica Purvis, director of the APS Marketing and Communications Department. “The I Spy Physiology blog relies on member-contributors who discuss the many ways that physiological research plays into everyday life. The #APSBenefitsMe campaign focuses on how APS members are using some of the Society’s most popular member benefits, such as the intimate networking opportunities afforded through our physiology-specific conference program.”

"We are privileged to recognize outstanding work in the association media and publishing industry this year. The EXCEL Awards showcase and spotlight first-class association content that’s both innovative and enlightening in a rapidly changing world. We look forward to announcing the winners at our Awards Gala on June 25,” said Michael Marchesano, AM&P executive director.

The award winners will be announced and celebrated at the 38th EXCEL Awards Gala, on June 25. Award-winning entries will be displayed at the EXCEL Awards Gala and featured in the August/September issue of AM&P’s Signature magazine. The Awards Gala is part of the 2018 AM&P Annual Meeting. APS Communications Manager Stacy Brooks will be a speaker at the conference as part of the session “Advancing Diversity and Inclusion through Content.” She will also moderate “The Strategy Behind Blogging” breakfast roundtable.
