IAM Grand Lodge, District 142 Earn Communications Awards

The IAM Communications Department and IAM District 142 have won a combined 12 awards in the International Labor Communications Association’s 2018 Labor Media Contest.

The awards recognize the IAM’s flagship magazine, the IAM Journal; the IAM’s weekly email newsletter, iMail; the IAM’s website, goIAM.org; as well as photography, video and web design published by the IAM in 2017. IAM District 142 won a third place award for a photograph in the Summer 2017 edition of The Observer.

“I’m so proud of the job the Communications Department does in every facet of modern communications to our members,” said Communications Director Bob Wood. “It shows by the fact that we won awards in so many categories, from the IAM Journal to iMail to video to our website. I’m happy the judges recognized the quality of our work. I also want to congratulate District 142 and David Supplee for winning best photo in their category.”
