I am new to this site and found it because I am a member of AMWA, which recently announced its award winners for the 2014 annual conference. Congratulations, Mr. Schwitzer, and I look forward to hearing your keynote address at the annual conference’s kickoff session.

And now I’m going to take a look at the rest of your excellent site.
