ASBPE presented its 2013 Lifetime Achievement Award to Julia Homer, former founding editor of CFO magazine, who spoke at the event. In addition, the Stephen Barr Award for feature writing was presented to Inc. Magazine senior writer Burt Helm. Helm’s winning story in the November 2012 Inc., “After the Squeeze,” examined the causes and effects of a bank-lending drought that has disproportionately hit the small-business people who are the publication’s main audience.
