A Canadian professional letter won an international association’s top prize for outstanding publication. efocus Municipal Assessment & Taxation won the International Association of Assessing Officers’ 2014 John A. Zangerle Award in recognition of an outstanding periodical or publication of an assessor’s association, IAAO chapter or other organization. The award was accepted during IAAO’s 80th Annual International Conference in Sacramento, California by Connie Fair, CEO of BC Assessment who is an Advisory Panel member along with Enid Slack, IMFG Director.
Even a nomination means the scope, coverage and yes, whimsy of eFocus was recognized and honoured. “While we take the topics and industry very seriously, we also believe that arcane, obtuse and complex information common in property assessment and taxation – even to the professional audience – can be better communicated and understood,” said Cynthia Martin of eFocus. “This is what guides our research, curating, writing and presentation.” Now in its 19th year, eFocus is Canada’s longest running independent assessment/tax publication, published by COMvivio Communications http://www.COMvivio.com of Nova Scotia.
