A big congratulations to the team at Vollmer for bringing two PRSA Silver Anvil Awards of Excellence back to Houston. The awards gala was held at the Equitable Tower in New York City on June 4, 2004.
Vollmer was recognized in the Public Service - Associations/Nonprofit Organizations category for work on behalf of Texas Council On Family Violence. The winning program was named, "Break the Silence."
Vollmer was also recognized with a Silver Anvil Award of Excellence in the Marketing Consumer Services - Travel and Tourism/Hospitality category for work on behalf of Travelocity. That winning program was titled, "Know Before You Go: Travelocity's TotalPrice For Cars."
The Silver Anvil Awards program has grown in scope and stature since its inception in 1946. With the addition of a new category in 2004, Brand/Reputation Management, Silver Anvils are now awarded to programs in 54 categories. In the 57 years since the inception of the Silver Anvil Awards program, more than 1,000 organizations have received Silver Anvils for excellence in strategic public relations planning and implementation.
