IABC Nashville workshop to provide winning tips for Gold Pen Awards

NASHVILLE – Every year IABC Nashville recognizes area business communicators for their work and commitment to excellence at the Gold Pen Awards. This year, the chapter is giving potential entrants an opportunity to learn tricks of the trade in submitting their award-winning projects.

Javier Solano, vice president at McNeely, Pigott and Fox Public Relations, multiple Gold Pen recipients, will join IABC Nashville on June 18 at its monthly professional development luncheon to share tips on how to prepare and submit top business communication programs for consideration. The luncheon will be held at 11:30 a.m. at Maggiano’s Little Italy, located at 3106 West End Avenue.

“The format for the IABC Gold Pen Awards is changing this year, and Javier’s tips could provide entrants with the extra focus needed to excel in this competition,” said Julie K. Davis, IABC Nashville president. “We believe that this outstanding awards program is highly respected and provides validation of strong communication programs. A Gold Pen is certainly a prize worth having!”

The Gold Pen Awards workshop will cover information on why to participate in Gold Pen, changes for 2014, a step-by-step on how to submit award-worthy entries, resources you’ll need and feedback on common problems and the judging process.

Through IABC’s professional development luncheons, members and guests enjoy networking opportunities each month, learn from knowledgeable guest speakers and receive integral information on how to improve communication skills. Luncheons are held each month, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., and the cost is $30 for members and $40 for non-members.
