(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) has been named the overall winner in the 2008 Associations Make a Better World Awards, an international awards competition sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and the Center for Association Leadership, Washington, DC.
Associations Make a Better World Awards recognize associations that engage in compelling programs and activities that benefit communities in the United States and internationally in two categories: U.S./Developed Nations and Developing Nations. ASACP received the overall award in the U.S./Developed Nations category for its RTA ''Restricted to Adults'' website label. RTA is a free, easy to use, and internationally recognized label that designates content for adults only. ASACP launched RTA in November 2006, it now has over four million link- ins and there are 50 million hits to pages labeled with RTA daily.
The Associations Make a Better World Awards recognize outstanding association programs, projects and activities that make a significant contribution to societies and economies around the world. These awards are presented annually to recognize associations making an impact outside the United States. ASACP CEO Joan Irvine will receive the award at ASAE & the Centerís 2008 Annual Meeting & Exposition in August.
''This is a tremendous honor for ASACP and for all of our supporters,'' stated Irvine. ''We greatly appreciate everyone who contributed to creating RTA and has labeled with RTA, and of course none of this would be possible without our sponsorsí support of our ongoing efforts to create innovative programs to continue our mission. We hope that every company will label with RTA to demonstrate their intent to protect children and their support of ASACPís efforts.''
''We are proud to recognize associations that share Asae & the Centerís vision to make the world a better place,'' said ASAE President and CEO John H. Graham IV, CAE. ''This is an outstanding group of associations that strive to improve the health of our communities, both in the United States as well as abroad. These associations prove that our greater association community can be successful in answering the challenges we face on a local, regional and global scale.''
