Jul 19, 2010

New Orleans, La. (FCA) June 3, 2010 – While three of Alpha Tau Omega’s varied communications initiatives earned recognition at the Fraternity Communications Association (FCA) awards banquet, on May 7, one staff member—Director of Marketing Matt DeWolf—earned the association’s top internal honor.

The fraternity’s Communications Consultants, Eugene Bichlmeier and Bradley Carter, were on hand to accept the communication awards at the culmination of FCA’s 87th annual conference. DeWolf, who served as FCA’s vice president of operations, was the 2010 recipient of the Marilyn Simpson Ford Award for his years of outstanding service to the association. He was a visionary as a member of the board, instrumental in furthering FCA’s online offerings and dedicated to improving the fiscal standings of the association.

For the annual awards, communications industry professionals judged more than 600 submissions from dozens of Greek-letter organizations. Bichlmeier and Carter accepted the following awards for excellence in printed and multimedia efforts:

Publication Improvement—Printed Material, first place
Board of Trustees GuideBook

Printed Material—Educational, third place

“I’m proud to say we have never had more submissions than we did for this year’s competition,” said Mariellen Sasseen, FCA’s director of recognition. “It was humbling to see so many outstanding entries.”
