Three Times the Recognition

The Actuary wins three top EXCEL Awards for design

The Society of Actuaries (SOA) is pleased to announce The Actuary received three top Association Media and Publishing EXCEL Awards this year.

The EXCEL Awards are the largest and most prestigious award program that exclusively recognizes excellence in nonprofit association media, publishing, marketing and communications. Entries came from, or on behalf of, any 501(c) nonprofit organization that published a project between Jan. 1 and Dec. 31, 2015.

The Actuary received a bronze Excel Award award for design excellence, as well as a silver and bronze for two feature article designs.

This recognition comes after the SOA teamed up with GLC, a marketing communications agency, to redesign its flagship publication, The Actuary. The collaboration has since expanded to include development of this responsive website, which showcases the magazine content, plus web exclusives and digital media.

Members of the SOA publications team include Jacque Kirkwood, magazine staff editor; Julia Anderson Bauer, publications manager; Erin Pierce, senior graphic designer; and Cheré LaRose, director, member and candidate communications. Members of the GLC team include Rick Cruz, senior art director; Kathleen Hagan, managing editor; Jason Grey, director of digital operations; Brittany Magee, editorial associate; Linda Klepitch, project and ad trafficking coordinator; Rene Ryan, senior director, client strategy; and Joe Stella, vice president, business development.

The SOA and GLC are honored by the recognition and delighted to share this award!
