San Diego sets new mark for participation – American Association of Political Consultants News – Public Affairs Pollie Awards Ceremony and Conference 2002 – Brief Article

The 2002 Public Affairs Pollie Awards Ceremony and Conference was a huge success. Each year the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC) presents the prestigious Pollie Awards program rotating its focus annually between politics and public affairs. Held in beautiful San Diego, political and public affairs professionals from all over the country met for three days to recognize the best in our industry. There were eight informational seminars with guest speakers from all areas of Public Affairs, a golf tournament at the world renowned Torrey Pines, a number of networking receptions, and a relaxing cocktail cruise on Friday evening in the San Diego Bay that proved to be very popular. Some of the featured speakers included Carl Cannon, the White House correspondent for National Journal, Bill Schneider, CNN’s Political Analyst, and Tony Perry, San Diego bureau chief of the Los Angeles Times. In the end, more Public Affair Pollie entries than ever before and a high turnout made this the largest Public A ffairs Pollies to date!

The recent Pollie Awards were a dynamic showcase for achievement in the Public Affairs industry, and the AAPC is looking forward to continuing this success with January’s Political Pollies,” said Donna Lucas, AAPC President. The AAPC would like to extend a special thanks to all of you who submitted entries, judged, sponsored, spoke, or contributed to this year’s Pollies.
