December 2016

From the Desk of Barb Clapp...   
2016 has been a busy and exhilarating year for Clapp Communications. We celebrated our 15th year in business and thankfully our clients continued to grow and experience countless successes. Our media buys, marketing and advertising advice, social media strategies and public relations initiatives brought wins for our clients and ourselves. The Clapp team won countless awards on both a local and national level and I am proud to say that I won the Most Admired CEO award and was inducted into the Circle of Leadership. In addition we continued our commitment to serving our community. Our team gave our time to  causes we care about such as  the American Diabetes Association, HSUS, Signal 13 Foundation, PRSA Maryland Chapter and the Alzheimer's Association to name a few.  We have worked hard and have had fun doing it. I want to thank my amazing team for showing up every day with their A game in place and for truly caring about the success of our clients and our agency. Thank you to our amazing clients for your support and friendship over these years. Wishing everyone a happy and prosperous 2017. Cheers!
