Sept. 30, 2003: Operation Oswego County Wins Top Marketing Award

The Northeastern Economic Developers Association (NEDA) recognized Operation Oswego County (OOC) with awards of “best of class” and “superior” for its economic development brochure titled “Your Future Starts Here.”
“Your Future Starts Here” was designed to showcase the exceptional quality of life in Oswego County in order to help attract new industry and add new and better job opportunities.

“This brochure is an effective tool for bringing attention to Oswego County and the resources and assets that would offer value to a potential business customer,” said L. Michael Treadwell, CEcD, executive director of OOC, Oswego County’s designated economic development agency.

OOC’s “Oswego County Industrial Directory” was also recognized with an award of “excellent.” The directory is a resource guide to manufacturing, warehousing, distribution and specialized industrial services in Oswego County.

The recognitions are awarded each year to economic development organizations throughout the northeastern United States who produce printed materials and Internet media to promote economic development in their areas. OOC has won several awards in past years for the effectiveness of its promotional materials from NEDA and other regional and national professional development organizations. Entries are judged by a panel of experienced economic development and marketing professionals and are determined based on design and layout, clarity of message, quality, functionality and overall creativity and impact.

“The NEDA Literature and Promotion Awards recognize the best and most effective publications in the economic development field. We are proud that our marketing materials have met the test of our economic development colleagues from throughout the northeastern United States,” Treadwell said.

“Your Future Starts Here” was developed by OOC staff and Distler Communications of Oswego. “Oswego County Industrial Directory” was developed by OOC staff and Ed Vayner and Associates of Fulton.
