As a result of Circuit Media’s efforts to promote and standardize the use of clear, concise communications, our CEO Rebecca was selected to sit on the Board of Directors for the Center for Plain Language. The Center for Plain Language is a non-profit organization that helps government agencies and businesses write clear and understandable documents. The Center supports those who use plain language, trains those who should use plain language, and urges people to demand plain language in all the documents they receive, read, and use. Our communications team participated in a training session with the Center’s founder in April of this year, where we learned many useful skills that can be employed in almost every aspect of our work. Rebecca and the Center are planning an event in Denver this fall, so keep an eye out in the coming months for further details.

Circuit Media recently learned that our company made the ColoradoBiz Magazine list of Top Woman Owned Companies for the first time! The 2016 list features companies from a wide range of industries, and we are so excited to be featured among them. We hope to use this recognition as a source of motivation to continue to push toward success, for the rest of this year and beyond.
Congrats to our editorial and design teams for winning big at last night’s Society of Professional Journalists Top of the Rockies Awards! Hannah, Doug, and Joe won a total of eight awards — four for the design team and two each for Doug and Hannah, including a total sweep of the legal enterprise reporting category. Way to go, everyone!

It allows you to get a glimpse into all of the hard work that’s been happening on the Horizon Drive Roundabouts project in Grand Junction since September 2015. The public information team wishes we had one of these videos for all of our projects!
