Printing Industries Alliance, IDEAlliance Open Nominations for Zenger Community Service Medal
AMHERST, NY, and ALEXANDRIA, VA—February 11, 2015—Printing Industries Alliance and IDEAlliance have opened nominations for their 2015 Zenger Community Service Medal.
The Zenger Community Service Medal honors a graphic communications professional who has demonstrated an exceptional community service. These individuals may inspire us to be more than we are; make our community a better place to live; or serve our country in ways that make us proud. The Award is not based on business position or title and is meant to recognize an employee at any level of the industry.
The Zenger Community Service Medal is named for John Peter Zenger, a New York City printer whose arrest, imprisonment, trial and acquittal in 1735 laid the foundation for “Freedom of the Press” in America.
A $1,000 contribution will be made to the 2015 Zenger honoree’s charity of choice on behalf of IDEAlliance and Printing Industries Alliance. The Zenger Community Service Medal will be awarded at the 2015 Franklin Luminaire Awards slated for Oct. 1, 2015, at The Lighthouse, Chelsea Piers, New York. For further information or to submit a nomination for consideration, visit www.PIAlliance.org/zenger2015 or contact Printing Industries Alliance at (716) 691-3211.
