Operation Oswego County’s 2010 Annual Report Receives “Excellence” Award

Operation Oswego County, Oswego County’s designated economic development agency, was recently awarded “excellence” for its 2010 Annual Report by the New York State Economic Development Council’s 2012 marketing and promotional materials award competition.

The report profiles development projects and summarizes capital investment and job creation facilitated by OOC in 2010.

The report was created in conjunction with Step One Creative.

OOC was also awarded “excellence” for an ad developed with Ady Voltedge, an economic development marketing consulting firm, as part of a comprehensive marketing strategy for the BirdsEye plant.

For its electronic newsletter, “OOC E-News,” OOC received the rank of “honorable mention.”

The “OOC E-News” has become a valuable tool to report important information about current economic development activity to our constituents and to direct potential business customers to our website to learn about the resources and assets of our county.

“The NYSEDC marketing and promotional materials award competition recognizes the best and most effective publications in the economic development field. We are proud that our marketing materials have met the test of our economic development colleagues from throughout New York State,” said L. Michael Treadwell, OOC executive director.

The recognitions are awarded each year to NYSEDC member organizations throughout New York State who produce printed materials and Internet media to promote economic development in their areas.

OOC has won several awards in past years for the effectiveness and quality of its advertising and promotional materials from NYSEDC and other regional and national professional development organizations.
