The 11th Annual Best of Direct Awards Ceremony and Holiday Party hosted by the Direct Marketing Association of Washington was held on Tuesday, December 4. Each year, the DMAW takes the time to honor those who have shown the ability to adapt in a changing marketplace and have been exemplary in their field.

We enjoyed an evening full of good food and drinks, networking, and time spent honoring the recipients of the Best of Direct Awards. We couldn’t be prouder that one of our own was the recipient of one of these prestigious awards.

Elise Buck receives the DMAW Educational Foundation Kay Lautman Mentorship Award.

Elise Buck, Client Services Manager at MailSmart Logistics and two-time DMAW Volunteer of the Year award winner, received the DMAW Educational Foundation Kay Lautman Mentorship Award. This award recognizes an individual, nominated by their peers, who has acted as an outstanding mentor and guide in the career of a direct response fundraising professional.

We congratulate Elise as well as all the other honorees that help keep our direct marketing industry so vibrant and strong.

We cannot neglect to thank the DMAW and DMAWEF for recognizing deserving members of our industry each year.
