CCAH Recognized with Gold and Bronze Pollies in the Telemarketing Category  

Arlington, Va./San FranciscoMay 5, 2016 Chapman Cubine Adams + Hussey (CCAH), a full-service direct marketing firm serving global nonprofit organizations, is proud to announce that it is the recipient of two Pollie Awards from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC). CCAH was recognized with a Gold and a Bronze Pollie in the Best Use of Telephone Fundraising category for its exemplary telemarketing efforts during the 2015 political season.

The Pollie Awards (Pollies) are bipartisan honors awarded annually by the AAPC to members of the political advertising and communications industry who have demonstrated superior work on behalf of their candidates and causes. The Pollie is the highest industry honor bestowed on political consultants at the national and international level.

CCAH’s Pollie Award wins are as follows:

  • A Gold for its efforts on behalf of EMILY’s List and the “Take Back the Senate” Emergency Telemarketing Appeal, and
  • A Bronze, also for its activities on behalf of EMILY’s List, in the “Take Back the Senate” Mid-Level Donor Appeal.

"Wins in this year’s contest are even more significant than before, as the judging criteria were tougher and the emphasis on the political effectiveness greater," said AAPC President Mark Mellman.  “This year’s winners should be proud of their outstanding work and their contributions to the political process.”

Kim Cubine, president of CCAH, said, “It is a tremendous honor to receive this recognition from AAPC for our work with EMILY’s List. Every day CCAH strives to make a difference through the client causes we support. These awards demonstrate our talented staff’s ability to collaborate with clients to generate outstanding marketing campaigns to support worthy causes.”

The AAPC announced this year’s winners at the 2016 Annual Pollie Awards & Conference on April 14 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.
