The Toronto-based National Advertising Benevolent Society has awarded its 2012 Paul Mulvihill/NABS Heart Award to Bob White. The annual award recognizes people in the communication industry who "have made significant contributions throughout their own career to better the lives of others through NABS." White joined the society's board in 1988, and was chair from 1995 to 1997. He sat again on the board from 2003 to 2012. "Bob White lives and breathes NABS," said Jim Warrington, executive director of the society. "His passion for our work and his huge volunteer effort over many years, in many roles deserve our thanks and our praise."
