Paul B. Clark Award
CAPIO’s Paul B. Clark Award was created in 1985 to recognize outstanding contributions of one of its members to the field of public information. Paul B. Clark was the City of Carson’s public information officer, and a founder of the Southern California Association of Public Information Officials (CAPIO), which later became the statewide organization, CAPIO.
The award is presented at the Annual Conference to the individual who, in the judgment of the CAPIO Board of Directors, demonstrates exceptional leadership in the field through professional commitment, including the mentoring of others and fostering a greater understanding of the PIO function among colleagues, the community and the media.
