WASHINGTON – The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) website received national recognition in the PR News’ 2016 Nonprofit PR Awards. NBWA was honored today at the PR News Spring Awards Luncheon at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. The event saluted a distinguished circle of those holding the key to best practices in the nonprofit communications arena, honoring the top nonprofit PR campaigns of the year, the smartest communications initiatives and the people behind them.

NBWA, the trade association representing America’s 3,300 licensed, independent beer distributors, worked with NJI Media to launch a new, mobile-friendly website last May.

“The website has increased NBWA’s engagement with the association’s members, and it also has increased education with external groups including policymakers, members of the media and others, so that they better understand the role that America’s 3,300 independent beer distributors play in communities across the country,” Spicer said.

The website features educational tools for the public, including a library of NBWA videos and brochures, as well as streamlined navigation to the programs and benefits the association provides to its members.

In addition to information about the history of state-based alcohol regulation and today’s effective, three-tier beer distribution system, the site prominently features industry employees through the NBWA Employee Spotlight Program. Each week, a new beer distribution employee is featured on the site’s home page.
