Each year, Naylor recognizes its best client projects, and the team of people who produce them, as part of the Naylor President’s Excellence Awards. These projects are the culmination of much hard work by Naylor’s staff and its association partners, and they represent the quality of products and service Naylor prides itself on delivering.

There are five awards that recognize excellence in design, content and overall project success within print publications, online/digital media and face-to-face events. To qualify, the project(s) must:

  • Be held in the highest regard by the association client – having proven successful in helping it achieve its overall communication goals and objectives.
  • Serve as the best example of Naylor’s ability to execute, while maintaining the highest degree of quality.

The winning project teams referenced below came out on top after enduring a long and competitive sales cycle; creating thoughtful and effective marketing plans and contributing significant hours of hard work and dedication to achieving the associations’ goals. All represent the Naylor spirit of teamwork and commitment to the company’s core operating values.
