CEO Update wins two APEX Awards

Aug. 14, 2020

CEO Update’s work covering the association community recently received APEX Awards for Publication Excellence in two writing categories.

The APEX Awards are an annual competition among communications professionals. Nearly 1,200 entries published during 2019 were submitted for judging.

The winning entries:

Excellence in writing regular departments and columns: CEO Update’s Inside Compensation series provides the latest and most comprehensive reporting available on the salaries of association chief executives. The three primary surveys during the year look at CEO pay at large, midsize and small groups. Other installments look at top-paid staffers. Managing Director Mark Graham oversees the research and analysis.

Excellence in feature writing: The award recognizes Reporter Walt Williams’ May 23 story “Making industry diversity a priority.” The article focuses on how some associations have boosted efforts to increase diversity, equity and inclusion in their industries by hiring full-time employees to oversee diversity initiatives and outreach.
