Operation Oswego County Earns Award of ‘Best in Class’ for 2012 Annual Report

Operation Oswego County, Oswego County’s designated economic development organization, was recently awarded best in class for its 2012 Annual Report, at The Northeastern Economic Developers Association’s 2013 literature and promotions award competition.

NEDA represents 11 states including Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont.

The recognitions are awarded each year to economic development organizations throughout the northeastern United States who produce printed and web-based materials to promote economic development in their areas.

OOC’s annual report profiles development projects and summarizes capital investment and job creation facilitated by OOC in 2012.

The report was created in conjunction with Step One Creative of Oswego.

OOC has won several awards in past years for the quality and professionalism of its promotional materials from NEDA and other regional, state and national economic development organizations.

Entries are judged by a panel of experienced economic development and marketing professionals and are determined based on design and layout, clarity of message, quality, functionality and overall creativity and impact.

Executive Director of OOC L. Michael Treadwell noted that, “this type of recognition clearly demonstrates that OOC is on target in developing quality marketing and public relations products to promote the assets of Oswego County to businesses. I want to commend the efforts of OOC’s Marketing and Development Committee chaired by Barbara Bateman, on helping us stay in the forefront. Also, I want to thank our staff, and in particular, Evelyn LiVoti, marketing and development manager, for coordinating the development of our marketing strategies which are integral and essential to a county-wide comprehensive economic development program.”
