(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- The City of San Diego has proclaimed Monday, August 18th 2008 as Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection (ASACP) Day. San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders issued the Proclamation honoring ASACP and its RTA ''Restricted to Adults'' website label.
The proclamation was issued in conjunction with ASACP being named the overall winner in the 2008 Associations Make a Better World Awards, an international awards competition sponsored by the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) and the Center for Association Leadership, Washington, DC. ASACP CEO Joan Irvine will receive the award at ASAE & the Centerís 2008 Annual Meeting & Exposition on August 19th at the San Diego Convention Center.
Associations Make a Better World Awards recognize associations that engage in compelling programs and activities that benefit communities in the United States and internationally in two categories: U.S./Developed Nations and Developing Nations. ASACP received the overall award in the U.S./Developed Nations category for its RTA ''Restricted to Adults'' website label.
RTA is a free, easy to use, and internationally recognized label that designates content for adults only. ASACP launched RTA in November 2006, it now has nearly five million link- ins and there are two billion hits to pages labeled with RTA daily.
''It is a tremendous honor for ASACP to be recognized by ASAE and we are very grateful to Mayor Sanders and the City of San Diego for proclaiming ASACP Day. ASACP may be located in Southern California, but thanks to our supporters and sponsors the work we do has an international impact which is vital to truly protecting children online,'' stated Irvine. ''There are more parental control systems available now than ever before, and each day more websites choose to label with RTA, the most important thing is that parents use these tools. Protecting children requires us all working together.''
