Call for Nominations for CAPIO’s Individual Awards
Deadline: September 24
Nominations are now open for CAPIO’s annual special awards including our Communicator of the Year Award, Frank Potter Cowan Crisis Communications Leader of the Year Award and the prestigious Paul B. Clark Award.
While our EPIC Awards Program is on pause until next spring, CAPIO’s special recognitions are awarded annually to celebrate the work done by individuals who are shining in the government communications field. These awards will be presented in person at our CAPIO 2021 Annual Conference in November in Olympic Valley. During this time we will also have a chance to celebrate our 2020 individual award recipients who were awarded virtually last year.
