The DMAW/EF is the largest regional direct marketing association whose members includes end-users, vendors, suppliers, agencies, freelancers, educators and students in the Washington metro, Baltimore and Central Virginia areas. The award, which was named after DMAW/EF leader Michael O’Hara, recognizes a professor who is highly involved in direct interactive marketing in the classroom.

“[Professors] often don’t know the impact we have because the students take a class and move on,” said Clarke. “This award helped validate for me that I’m making a difference.”

After receiving the award, Clarke was interviewed by Scott Huch the president of Delta Group, Inc. and the secretary of the DMAW/EF Board of Directors. Her interview provided so much valuable information that it was decided that her interview would be published in DMAW/EF’s magazine Marketing AdVents in three sections. The first of Clarke’s three-part interview entitled “Our 2014 O’Hara Leadership Award Winner Talks About Marketing Education” was published in the April 2015 issue of Marketing AdVents.

She is also involved in the DMAW/EF’s Professors Institute, which according to Clarke “provides an avenue for like-minded professors to come together, collaborate, and share best practices in teaching and research.”

“The DMAW/EF’s programs are a nice toolbox available to us,” said Clarke.
