The IMARK Group, Oxon Hill, Md., recently held it's annual Showcase meeting in Chicago, Ill. Among the recipients of the IMARK Marketing awards was DH Supply, Atlanta, Ga. DH Supply won honors as Rookie of the Year for Silver Level Member--members who have been in IMARK for less than two years and meet certain purchase volume requirements.

Areas of consideration for this award are percent of total purchases through IMARK, CTME (Committed to Marketing Excellence) activity, meeting participation, total number of conversions to IMARK manufacturers, and attaining Gold Status. Gold Status is achieved by meeting 12 of 14 requirements, including increasing dollar volume of purchases by 5%; participating in 100 CTME activities; completing 15 marketing plans; submitting quarterly and annual financials on time; participating in the NAED PAR survey; and attending the Annual IMARK meeting and at least one other IMARK meeting.

"We are very proud of this award," commented DH Supply Executive Vice President David G. Hicks, Jr. "It shows our commitment to IMARK and IMARK's ability to recognize and reward that commitment. We have put a great amount of time and resources into our IMARK effort. This award and the three awards we won in October have given us a great return on our IMARK effort."
