Romeoville, Ill., May 11, 2016 - The Christian Brothers Services (CBS) marketing department was awarded a 2016 Gold International Hermes Creative Award for Facebook Site and a 2016 Honorable Mention for Twitter. The Gold Award is presented to those entries judged to exceed the high standards of the industry norm and Honorable Mention certificates are granted to those entries that meet the expectations of the judges.

In 2011, CBS recognized the increased popularity of social media sites, and began utilizing Facebook, Twitter, WordPress and LinkedIn to connect with our member community and keep them informed on industry news, tips and the full array of CBS offerings. CBS social media followers receive health and safety information, find out which conferences CBS will be attending, where our experts will be speaking, when to catch our next webinar and much more. Social media gives us more of a dialog with our members and allows us to further build, activate and unite the Christian Brothers Services community.

"Social media really shows not only what we offer, but our work culture, mission, those who serve our mission and how we, at CBS, go above and beyond," stated Krysten McGee, social media specialist at Christian Brothers Services. "We continually network, connect, build relationships and share important news with other religious organizations."
