ATLIS Wins 2022 Gold Circle Award for Excellence in Association Communications from ASAE

April 21, 2022
— The Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) announced today it has been recognized by ASAE with a 2022 Gold Circle Award in the print magazine category. The Gold Circle Awards competition is the premier association marketing, membership, and communications award that recognizes excellence, innovation, and achievement in association/nonprofit marketing, membership, and communications programs. This year’s competition received more than 300 entries across 15 categories, including convention/meeting campaign, member retention campaign, print magazine, and video.

"While there was plenty about the pandemic that put us in a reactionary state, ATLIS aimed to also find strategic opportunities to be proactive. In other words, we had no intention of wasting a good crisis," said Christina Lewellen, ATLIS's executive director. "ATLIS executed a carefully vetted plan to overhaul the magazine, tying almost every content, design, and distribution decision to accomplishing our clear strategic marching orders to celebrate the contributions of independent school technologists, help decision-makers at schools understand why technology leaders should be involved at the top levels of decision making, and promulgate best practices among the broader independent school community. We're thrilled to see these efforts recognized with an ASAE Gold Circle Award." 

Entries for the Gold Circle Awards competition are judged consistently in each category based on criteria established by the ASAE Gold Circle Award Committee for excellence in association marketing, membership, and communications programs. 

“I am thrilled to congratulate the 2022 ASAE Gold Circle Award winners. ASAE’s Gold Circle Award recognizes the unique position of associations in the marketing and communications landscape.” said Kerri L. McGovern, MPP, CAE, chair of the Gold Circle Awards Committee.

“By celebrating excellence in the field, the Gold Circle Awards highlights the creativity and innovation that association executives bring to the table and the results of which positively impact associations and its members. This year’s award winners embody what it means to be thoughtful, creative, and goal-driven.”
