    The Alliance is seeking a professional brand, marketing or public relations firm or team to perform a comprehensive evaluation of the CBP brand identity by (1) conducting stakeholder research to understand current brand perceptions, (2) auditing the Chesapeake Bay Program’s existing brand to determine what implicit and explicit messages are being sent and how audiences perceive those messages, (3) creating a brand strategy and brand messaging that identifies key elements of the CBP brand, and (4) developing a standards manual that specifies methods staff and partners can use to uniformly and consistently raise awareness about the CBP and promote the value of the partnership. The Chesapeake Bay Program expects to retain its current name, tagline and logo.
