DMEF recognizes Time Consumer Marketing as first Corporate Commitment Award recipient
The Direct Marketing Educational Foundation has announced that Time Consumer Marketing Inc., the consumer marketing division of Time Inc., is the first honoree of the foundation's Corporate Commitment Award.
The award will be presented at the annual DMEF New York Awards Dinner June 19 at The Central Park Boathouse. It is being held in conjunction with the Direct Marketing Association's 2007 DM Days New York.
The DMEF's Corporate Commitment Award honors companies that regularly demonstrate a commitment to excellence in all areas of direct marketing education among new and upcoming talent and that consistently participate in activities that foster and promote excellence for today and tomorrow.
The New York-based publisher is a mainstay in many households today. Among its 150 titles are Time, Sports Illustrated, People, Entertainment Weekly, Fortune and People en Español.
In addition to its Corporate Commitment Award, DMEF will honor three "Rising Stars" in the direct marketing community. DMEF continues to accept nominations for this new award. The inaugural winners will be announced April 2.
DMEF's Rising Star nominees must be no older than 40, demonstrate superior leadership abilities and have a strong track record of outstanding results. Nominees must also have a stellar reputation for "giving back" through direct marketing education, exemplified by activities such as volunteering for industry groups or committees, teaching or mentoring.
The deadline for nominations is March 15. Additional information about the awards - including award criteria and a nomination form - is available at www.the-dma.org/dmef/RisingStarApp.pdf.
Invitations for the June 19 event will be mailed in March.
