Members of the Southeastern Outdoor Press Association gathered in Branson, Mo., for their 47th annual fall conference. In addition to participating in a wide variety of workshops and seminars, members received recognition by their peers with the prestigious SEOPA Excellence in Craft awards. Given each year to members whose work best exemplifies high professional standards, the SEOPA EIC awards are a highlight of the conference. We would like to congratulate Blue Heron Communications for receiving third place in Excellence in Craft – Industry Public Relations Program category. The SEOPA EIC awards are sponsored by Chevrolet and the National Shooting Sports Foundation served as host for the awards banquet.
