Dawn Nye Named IPMA Outstanding Contributor
The In-plant Printing and Mailing Association (IPMA) is thrilled to announce the IPMA board of directors has selected Dawn Nye to receive an IPMA Outstanding Contributor Award. She will be honored at IPMA’s 2022 Educational Conference and Vendor Fair June 12-16, 2022 in Buffalo, New York. Nye is program manager for the Premier Print Awards for PRINTING United Alliance.
“Dawn has been a key supporter of IPMA and the in-plant printing industry, in general, for many years with Konica-Minolta. She has always been a source for innovative ideas and contributions to the success of our organization. Dawn was always a hard worker behind the scenes and was free to help us in any way asked, whether financially, physically or as an advocate for IPMA,” said Mike Loyd, IPMA executive director.
“I am so honored to receive the Outstanding Contributor Award. I feel a close bond with the IPMA group because I started my career in a college in-plant print shop on work-study, where I found my passion for print. The IPMA group made me feel welcome during my first IPMA conference. I soon realized this group was like a family whose goals were to share knowledge and help each other. I look forward to continuing to work with the group in my new role as awards manager for Premier Print, Pinnacle product, and InterTech awards program,” said Nye.
