special merit award is chosen by and presented by the Board of
Directors to an industry service provider that has performed an
outstanding service to AM&P and achieved accomplishment spanning a
career in association media and publishing. It was founded in 2016 in
honor of loyal AM&P member Mitch Mohanna (

The 2017 recipient of the AM&P Mitch Mohanna Lifetime Achievement Award
is James G. Elliott, president of James G. Elliott Co.
"Jim has been an invaluable partner to our industry,” said Mike
Winkleman of Leverage Media, LLC and an AM&P Board member. “As a
close friend of Mitch Mohanna, Jim was instrumental in the creation of
this award in order to honor Mitch’s memory and to provide a way to
honor other independent service providers who, like Jim and Mitch, bring
great value to the industry.”
