Web Solutions would like to congratulate the Boys & Girls Club of Meriden for its recent recognition by the Boys & Girls Club of America. At the 103rd BGCA National Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, the club received a Silver Award in the category of Interactive / Online Marketing for the club’s new website. The Silver is the second highest award that can be received in any marketing category.
In his award notification letter, Evan McElroy, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Communications, Boys & Girls Clubs of America stated, “Hard work, creativity and dedication to the Movement have paid off for your fine team of professionals through the exceptional quality of work submitted this year. It is obvious that your Club is continuing to build a solid brand in your community.”
The national honor is a validation for the Boys & Girls Club of Meriden that their recent efforts with this medium have been paying off. “After meeting with Web Solutions and exploring general concepts we wanted to include, their staff created an attractive, colorful, highly professional and easy to use site for the Club to establish our presence on the Internet. All staff members were included in the process and have prime responsibility for the web-pages that are devoted to their programs. They can easily update information daily to keep everything current. Parents can find schedules, program and membership forms, make on-line contributions and request being added to our mailing and e-mail lists,” noted Dick Seethaler, Director of Resource Development and Marketing for the Meriden Club.
The club, along with other national awardees for various categories, was honored at a special breakfast held at the National Conference earlier in May.
