Thank you to the more than 200 public relations professionals who attended the 2016 Edward L. Bernays Mark of Excellence Awards Ceremony!

At the “Navigating Uncharted Waters” themed banquet, attendees were dazzled by the downtown San Diego skyline, which served as a backdrop to the cocktail reception on San Diego Bay. They then navigated through a three-course meal at Tom Ham’s Lighthouse where more 55 winners were announced and presented with Silver and Bronze Bernays Awards. Emcees for the event were April Bolduc, plug-in electric vehicle program manager for San Diego Gas & Electric, and Dan Hom, CEO and president of Focuscom Inc.
