Pittsburgh, Pa., May 17, 2004 - The Graphic Arts Technical Foundation (GATF) and its Society of Fellows (SOF) seeks to honor an outstanding industry woman in the graphic communications industry. Nominations for the Naomi Berber Memorial Award are due June 18, 2004.
The Naomi Berber Memorial Award was established in 1976 and was created to honor the “First Lady of the Foundation,” who served as GATF’s first administrative director and was the first woman elected to the SOF. It is presented to a woman who has made a major contribution to the development of the graphic communications industries.
Nominees for the Berber award must have worked in the graphic communications industries for ten or more years and achieved an outstanding record of accomplishments. Such activities could be in the form of extraordinary leadership, direction, and/or support of programs that have furthered the interests of the graphic communications industries.
