International wins three ILCA awards

History book, convention Web site capture first-place prizes

THE BOILERMAKERS’ COMMUNICATION department received two first-place awards and an honorable mention at the International Labor Communications Association (ILCA) convention in New Orleans Oct. 20.

“Grace Under Pressure,” a history of the Boilermakers union, captured the top award for “editorial excellence” in the non-periodical special publication category for international, national, and other labor organizations. The Boilermakers’ convention Web site took first for “best content” in the Web site category for international unions, as well as “honorable mention” for Web site design.

Both “Grace Under Pressure” and the convention Web site were produced in 2006. The history book is now in its second printing and is available for purchase from the Boilermaker Archives.

The ILCA, founded in 1955, is the professional organization of labor communicators in North America. Its several hundred members produce publications with a total circulation in the tens of millions.
