Operation Oswego County Earns ‘Outstanding Marketing of Economic Development Products and Services Award’

OSWEGO, NY – The Northeastern Economic Developers Association will hold its annual conference on September 13–15 at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Downtown in Syracuse.

NEDA represents 11 states including Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Massachusetts, Maryland, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and Vermont. Each year NEDA recognizes outstanding achievements in the field of economic development by way of their annual Best Practice and Marketing Awards.

This year, NEDA will present the Outstanding Marketing of Economic Development Products and Services Award to Operation Oswego County for its OOC E-News.

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 E-News delivers a quick, easy-to-read synopsis of new and ongoing economic development projects directly to the e-mail boxes of OOC’s key stakeholders which would also contain clickable links to OOC’s website for more information.

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.

L. Michael Treadwell, executive director of OOC, said, “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.”
