City of Carrollton Marketing Team Earns State Recognition
Posted Date: 5/19/2014
The City of Carrollton Marketing Services department was honored with awards in three TAMI categories this year from the Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers (TAMIO).

The awards will be presented at the annual TAMIO conference held June 18-20 in Richardson. Carrollton earned a place in the Best Use of Social Media category for its work on the promotion and exposure of Carrollton’s Animal Services department. The creative efforts through Facebook, Twitter, and Nextdoor with photos, videos, and announcements resulted in increased adoption rates for the area. The extensive promotional work completed for Carrollton’s Centennial resulted in recognition and awards in two categories for the marketing team: Marketing—Plan or Campaign and Special Events—One Time.

“The TAMIO award nominations not only recognize the City of Carrollton’s Marketing Department as one of the best in Texas, but they also serve to recognize our staff’s high priority placed on engaging our citizens to increase involvement, responsiveness, and investment in our City,” said Marketing Director Kelli Lewis.

The TAMI awards saw a record number of entries this year with more than 300 submissions. For a complete list of 2014 TAMI award winners, visit

The Texas Association of Municipal Information Officers (TAMIO) was developed as a result of the increasingly complex role of public information in municipal government. Today, TAMIO has a growing number of public information specialists serving small communities as well as urban centers.

The TAMI Awards program serves as a professional highpoint for the municipal communications work in Texas. In addition to the peer recognition fostered by the TAMI Awards, the process allows all participating members to learn more about what best practices are at work in Texas. This promotes the “harvesting” of good ideas that help members to improve their own work process and product, and in doing so, promote the profession both inside and outside of local government.
