AHAM Takes Home Awards for Anti-Counterfeit Campaign and Interactive Kitchen

WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 14, 2017) —AHAM is pleased to announce that it has received awards for two recent, consumer-focused communications efforts. 

An AHAM-led campaign to raise awareness of the risks of counterfeit water filters was awarded a Silver Power of A award by ASAE, The Center for Association Leadership. Filter It Out, which 17 home appliance companies have signed on to support, aims to educate consumers about the need to purchase replacement refrigerator water filters from reputable sellers. The campaign also involves outreach to government officials who are in a position to identify counterfeits and prevent them from being sold to consumers. 

AHAM’s Interactive Kitchen, which takes users on a tour of a kitchen to show how standards affect appliance safety, efficiency and performance, received a Platinum Dotcomm award from the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals. The Dotcomm Awards are given by the Association of Marketing and Communications Professionals and honor excellence in Web creativity and digital communications.
