CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing Earns Two Statewide Public Relations Awards
For PACE Center for Girl’s Love that Dress! 5 and Lee County Bar Association Res Gestae Magazine

Fort Myers (August 21, 2014) – Connie Ramos Williams, CEO and President of CONRIC PR & Marketing | Publishing, is honored to announce that the firm was recently presented with two Awards of Distinction during the Golden Image Awards ceremony at the recent statewide conference of the Florida Public Relations Association in Orlando. The Golden Image Awards competition is conducted annually by the Florida Public Relations Association to recognize outstanding public relations programs. It has become a standard of public relations excellence in Florida. Winners demonstrate the very best examples of innovation, planning and design.

CONRIC and its client, the Lee County Bar Association (LCBA), received an Award of Distinction in the category of Printed Tools of Public Relations – Magazine for Res Gestae, the organization’s official publication. Another Award of Distinction was presented to CONRIC and its client PACE Center for Girls Lee County in the category of Public Relations Program for the Love that Dress! 5 campaign.

The CONRIC team publishes the LCBA’s monthly Res Gestae magazine in-house, transitioning it from a paper-and-staple newsletter to a professional full-color glossy magazine that creates advertising revenue for the organization. Res Gestae has served to improve the overall image of the LCBA and set it apart from similar associations while continuing to elevate its prestige among members and the community.

The Pace Center for Girls Lee County, Love that Dress! 5 campaigns were recognized for creating awareness not only for its fifth anniversary, but also for the events leading up to it. Along with an incredible committee and support from the community, a strong public relations strategy was one of the key components to the record breaking fundraising efforts and overall attendance.

The statewide FPRA Golden Image Awards takes place following regional Image Awards competitions. CONRIC took home six Image Awards from the Southwest Florida chapter this spring, including the most-prestigious Grand All Image Award for a public relations campaign for the firm’s promotion of the successful Quality Life Center Fundraiser: Changing Lives, Transforming Communities event featuring Magic Johnson. Res Gestae was also recently awarded Silver for Best Overall Writing in the Florida Magazine Association’s Charlie Awards.

Ramos-Williams says, “It means a great deal to me personally and our entire team of professionals at CONRIC to be recognized for our public relations campaigns at a statewide level. We partner with our clients to help them achieve success. We spend countless hours creating award-winning strategies that involve media relations, publicity, press releases, social media, advertising, video production, editorial, sales, website development, graphic design, newsletters, magazines and analytics. We are honored to accept these awards on behalf of our clients.“
