This is a guest post from Reynolda House Museum of American Art:
The Southeastern Museums Conference (SEMC) has awarded Reynolda House Museum of American Art the Gold Medal for the museum’s marketing campaign created for Reynolda’s centennial.
A Winston-Salem Journal story reported that “Reynolda House debuted the centennial logo in July 2017 to kick off its centennial-year celebrations. The designs reflected colors found throughout the inside and outside of the estate, Art Nouveau-style typography found in the original house blueprints, and a line drawing of a female hand and a rose, symbols of the three generations of women who have stewarded Reynolda’s legacy as a gift to the community. The designs appeared in an array of materials created for the milestone: banners, magnets, decals, embossers, stickers, invitations, T-shirts, advertisements and brochures.”
The Gold Medal award for the campaign will be given at the SEMC annual event in Jackson, Miss. in October. Reynolda earned first place out of 14 submissions in the category. SEMC encompasses museums in a 12-state region and includes Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

This is a guest post from radio station 88.5 WFDD:
On July 12 at the national Public Media Development and Marketing Conference (PMDMC), 88.5 WFDD was awarded the Benchmarks Station of the Year Award from Greater Public, the development and marketing organization for public media.
Greater Public’s Benchmarks for Public Radio Fundraising tracks fundraising performance across the public radio system. The metrics are designed to allow Greater Public, and stations, to make apples-to-apples comparisons of public radio stations’ fundraising effectiveness.
Fundraising metrics considered by Greater Public included net membership revenue, which increased by 81 percent; major giving growth of 167 percent; underwriting revenue growth of 36 percent; increase of underwriting sponsors of 52 percent. Only two other top-50 market public radio stations have converted more listening to revenue than 88.5 WFDD.
Judges for this distinguished award were impressed not just with 88.5 WFDD’s significant fundraising growth over the past five years, but also with the station’s “consistent commitment to better serve its audience and community,” Greater Public said.
Molly Davis, 88.5 WFDD Assistant General Manager, was at the PMDMC in Chicago to accept the award on behalf of the station.
“This award reflects several years of hard work by the many talented individuals who make up the 88.5 WFDD team,” Davis said. “Five years ago, we devoted ourselves not only to serving our listeners better, but to fundraising more effectively and efficiently, to support that increased and more robust service. We’re deeply honored to be recognized by our colleagues at Greater Public, an industry organization that understands the challenges facing the entire public media system today.”

What is the HELPS TLC?
HELPS TLC is a medically directed, professionally supervised “Therapeutic Lifestyle Change” program designed to develop a healthy and active lifestyle utilizing exercise and education programs.
