Les Conklin, past GPPA President and Editor of A Peek at the Peak, said, “Constant Contact has played an essential role in communicating with our members, volunteers, and newsletter subscribers for the past twelve years.  We were among the first users of  Constant Contact in our area and the product and its excellent support has enabled us to keep pace with changes in communication and our community.”

Small businesses and nonprofits using Constant Contact’s email marketing tools are eligible for this award. Criteria used to select this year’s All Stars included the following during 2016:
