Vancouver USA Wins AAPA Awards

By Karen Robes Meeks

The Port of Vancouver USA won four 2018 Communications Competition awards from the American Association of Port Authorities.

The port nabbed an Award of Excellence for its 2017 Virtual Holiday Card; Awards of Distinction for its Community Report and “Connecting with the Community” social media campaign and an Award of Merit for its Jobs & Economic Impact video.

“Much of the port’s work happens behind the scenes in industrial centers and marine terminals – areas people usually don’t see unless they happen to work there,” said port CEO Julianna Marler. “This can make it challenging to connect with our community in a meaningful way, but our staff continues to do great work, using a variety of tools to reach community members where they are and making it interesting and engaging.”
