Jim Macnamara is being showered with accolades. A couple of months ago he received the Don Bartholomew Award for Outstanding Service from AMEC. That’s him at the event in the photo above. And now the Institute for Public Relations has announced it will crown him with its highest academic honor, the Pathfinder Award. IPR awards the Pathfinder annually “in recognition of an original program of scholarly research that has made a significant contribution to the body of knowledge and practice of public relations.”
Here at The Measurement Standard we are proud to note that we recognized Jim’s award-worthiness way back in 2002, when we anointed him a Measurement Maven. Ever since, he has been a columnist, expert commentator, and frequent interview subject in these pages. Browse our several interviews with him here.
Dr. Jim Macnamara, one of the sharpest minds in communications research, measurement, and evaluation, is Professor of Public Communication at the University of Technology Sydney. He joined UTS in 2007 after a 30-year career in professional communication practice spanning journalism, public relations, advertising, and media research. He is the author of 16 books, the most recent of which is Organizational Listening: The Missing Essential in Public Communication, and he has a new book, Evaluation of Public Communication: New Models, Standards, and Best Practice, due out this fall.

Big, big congrats to Professor Jim Macnamara!
