More than 500 association professionals—including executive directors, CFOs, and senior leadership—gathered in Washington, DC, to honor select members of the association community for their professionalism, leadership, and commitment.
Among this year’s honorees at the Association TRENDS Salute to Association Excellence awards event was Marketing General Incorporated President Rick Whelan, who was named Association Partner of the Year—an annual award that recognizes long time personal involvement with the association world.
Accepting the award in typically modest fashion, Rick credited the support and long-established expertise of the MGI staff for his own and his company’s success.
“Building and maintaining a successful agency isn’t about one individual,” he said. “It’s the combined skills of many … some up front, many behind the scenes … who get projects produced and distributed to the marketplace on time and on budget. This award is really a tribute to my colleagues at Marketing General who work hard every day to keep us moving forward.”
