OTTAWA-GATINEAU, June 19, 2013 /CNW/ - The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) named Argyle Communications as the recipient of the 2013 Don Rennie Memorial Award. Argyle's president, Daniel Tisch APR, FCPRS, accepted a framed certificate and cash award on behalf of the award-winning agency during the CPRS National Awards Gala in Gatineau, QC on June 11.
Argyle Communications was recognized for its communications strategy developed for the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges & Universities. This strategy, through the use of an innovative approach, helped engage students in a discussion about Ontario tuition.
"Argyle Communications believes passionately in public relations for the public interest, and that's why it's a great honour to accept Canada's highest award in public sector communication," said Daniel Tisch, APR, FCPRS, President of Argyle Communications.
The Award is presented annually in memory of Don Rennie, a CPRS member who helped change the face of government communications in Canada through his pivotal role in developing and introducing a new communications policy that would span all departments of the Federal Government.
The Don Rennie Memorial Award was one of six Major Awards presented this year. The Major Awards recognize exceptional involvement in the public relations profession and candidates are nominated by peers.
