Foundation Honors 2013 Rising Stars;
Announces Release of Nondues Revenue Study
The Angerosa Research Foundation and Stratton Publishing & Marketing Inc. honored its 2013 Rising Star Scholars and announced the release of its groundbreaking new study during the Association Media & Publishing 2013 Annual Meeting, June 10, at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C.
For their contributions to the association publishing field, the Foundation recognized Philip George, associate manager, marketing and communications, Healthcare Businesswomen's Association; Sandy Laycox, writer/editor, National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems; Brendan McEntee, publications manager and managing editor, American Society of Addiction Medicine; and Debra Woodfork, production and design manager, Association of Corporate Counsel.

The Angerosa Research Foundation is the nonprofit organization established by Stratton Publishing & Marketing Inc. in 2003 to conduct industry benchmark research to benefit the association publishing and marketing communities, in honor of the late Angela Angerosa, former vice president of research for Stratton. Launched in 2008, the Rising Star Scholarship and Publishing Trendsetter recognition programs honor and support association media professionals. Since the inception of the scholarship program, 18 educational scholarships have been awarded.
Also during the event, the Foundation announced the upcoming release of its highly anticipated “Association Publishing/Media Nondues Revenue Study.” Through the generous support of Cummings Printing, this research benchmarks associations’ efforts to generate diverse sources of media-related nondues revenue in the print, digital, and mobile markets. The data allows organizations to compare their own practices and identify new areas for revenue expansion.
The full report, which will be released later this summer, will include information on median ad revenues generated by diverse media; practices and policies in media sales; stats on web traffic and ad sales/sponsorships practices and policies; policies for setting rates; median ad/sponsorship rates across print and digital platforms; and the top challenges and opportunities for expanding nondues revenues.
All participants will receive an Executive Summary of the findings and a discount on purchasing the full report. Pre-publication discounted ordering is now available by clicking here.
