The association announced in March that TSE had made the cut for five articles for this year’s Azbees, including two national awards and three regional honors. The national winners will be announced May 10 at the B2B Media Success Conference in Washington, D.C., while the regionals will be unveiled at regional ASBE chapter galas in April and May.

“We are thrilled to have received this recognition by such a prestigious organization. Everyone on our staff works diligently to continue our long tradition of creating an award-winning magazine,” said TSE Publisher & Editor Gabrielle Weiss. “For Danica and Sandi to be recognized specifically for the news analysis and case history categories is a testament not only to their individual talent, but also to TSE’s overall dedication to providing straight reporting and valuable information that aims to benefit our industry.”
