ALEXANDRIA, VA – The National Beer Wholesalers Association (NBWA) website has received national recognition with a bronze award in the Association TRENDS All Media Contest. NBWA was honored today at the 37th Annual Salute to Association Excellence at the Capital Hilton in Washington, D.C.

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.

“This new website aims to better serve NBWA’s membership, while promoting the commercial, economic and regulatory value of America’s independent beer distributors and today’s state-based regulatory system to policymakers, the media and the public,” said Rebecca Spicer, NBWA Senior Vice President, Communications and Public Affairs.

“As the public face of the association and the beer distribution industry, the website features strong visual elements to showcase America’s beer distributors and the choice and variety they help deliver,” Spicer added.

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.

The TRENDS All Media Contest is an annual competition held exclusively for associations, recognizing the most creative and effective communication vehicles developed in the industry over the prior year. The 2015 competition included 400 entries in 22 categories of association communications.

The All Media Contest winners will be featured in the March issue of TRENDS and online. Association TRENDS is the national newspaper for association executives and suppliers, spotlighting the latest news, information and trends in association management for the professional staff of international, national, state, regional and local voluntary organizations.
