Dear Miss America Family,
Today, a new era has begun for the Miss America Organization!
It gives me great pleasure to share some incredibly powerful news with you that will continue the upward trajectory of the Miss America Organization for years to come. We are thrilled to let you know that we have just concluded negotiating a strategic partnership deal with dick clark productions (dcp) in Los Angeles.

The link to this press release is below and will explain the depth of this deal.
This exciting new partnership will provide financial and creative opportunities for MAO and dcp. The collaboration between these two iconic brands will create an even greater platform for our organization and our loyal sponsors. dcp is the world's largest producer and proprietor of live televised events. dcp owns one of the world's most unique and extensive entertainment archive libraries with more than 55 years of award-winning shows, historic programs, specials, performances and legendary programming.

As we move forward, dcp will work with me, our Board and our talented MAO team to strengthen the branding and creative development for Miss America's corporate alliances with a vision of building brands and relationships across multiple year round platforms. dcp works with every major broadcast network, cable network, distributor and advertiser reaching audiences of all ages around the world.
I want to personally thank our Director of Development, Brent Adams, for his efforts in working with me as we negotiated a partnership of this magnitude. I'd also like to thank our corporate attorney, Jack Plackter and our President, Sharon Pearce who supported us during the three months of negotiations.
This MAO/dcp partnership will ensure our future for years to come and our state organizations will benefit from the power of this amazing partnership as well. We are so very proud to share it with those of you who have been so incredibly loyal and dedicated to the success of our beloved program.
We look forward to sharing an incredible 2015 Miss America Celebration with you on Sunday, September 14th!
