What a difference a year makes. This time last year I was still in a post-election funk. Not even the promise of summer could lift my spirits.
CCAH Blog: Industry Voices
At CCAH we are so proud and grateful to work with clients that are making the world a better place. And we love celebrating major milestones with our clients by attending anniversary events.
I can’t wait! After a year of living in a surreal political environment where facts are disregarded, news is unworthy, and public service is disparaged, I am packing my bags for Little Rock for the 25th Anniversary of the election of Bill Clinton & Al Gore.
If you've ever attended a direct marketing conference or read an industry publication, you've probably seen a session or read an article by a CCAH team member. And that’s no mistake. As a leader in nonprofit direct marketing, I encourage our staff — whether it be account leaders, data scientists, production team or creative folks — to do just that … be generous with their knowledge and creativity.
It was a festive mood as always at the annual Holiday Party celebrating with staff and clients on the East Coast. Against the backdrop of The Living Room in Washington, D.C., everyone gathered to enjoy lively conversations, good food, great music and holiday cheer. Even Frank the Feral, mascot of Alley Cat Allies, chose to take time away from his important feline duties to make an appearance!
The holidays are a great time to reflect on all of the good things that surround us. CCAH is particularly grateful for our great staff, amazing clients and partners that support us in ways large and small all year long. Our Holiday Party is our way of showing our appreciation – but also a great way to connect outside of the conference rooms in a more relaxed setting.
It’s important to reenergize, talk, laugh, and yes, even dance with colleagues and friends before we collectively take on the opportunities and challenges that 2017 holds. With that thought in mind, I’d like to thank everyone who attended and extend a ‘Thank You’ and ‘Happy Holidays’ to all who could not!
What – you voted already? But it’s only October. That’s right, election day is not until Tuesday, November 8th but plenty of votes are already being cast. This year, it’s predicted that an estimated 40 percent of all voters will vote early. Will you be one of them? Early voting is an option in many states, and it’s a great way to ensure your vote is cast and your voice is heard! Here are just a few important things to know about early voting across the nation.
When a child is sick, the last thing a parent should have to worry about is money. Every family should have access to the best medical care possible for their child regardless of ability to pay.
No organization understands this fact better than Phoenix Children's Hospital Foundation (PCHF) — one of the newest clients to join the CCAH family. PCHF's mission is to inspire generosity from kind people in Arizona and nationwide to support the children, families and physicians of Phoenix Children's Hospital.
This is not the blog that we were supposed to post this week, but given the tragic events that have occurred in Charleston recently, I needed to share some thoughts on the murder of Walter Scott and the tragic mass shooting at Emanuel AME church last week.
