MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Wow! At the begin of 2017 I knew it would be an amazing year, and it was!

Many thanks to Kevin Storr and crew for pulling together a successful PRSA Southeast District Conference. The professionalism and attention to detail of the team made for an outstanding and informative conference.

Kudos to our board for your hard work to produce great programs, grow membership, and support our fellow communications professionals from around the state with a strong network and professional development opportunities.

Thank you to our own Garland Stansell for representing our chapter admirably. After a successful year as PRSA National board secretary, Garland was taped to continue his national board leadership as treasurer in the coming year. We’re very proud of Garland.

And last but not least, thank you to more than 200 members of our chapter. I’m grateful for your passion for public relations and for upholding the ethics and ideals of our profession through your commitment to PRSA.

To that point, as my last bit of business as president, I want to encourage you to nominate a colleague for the Ron Council Mentorship Award. The ideal candidate is someone, who like Ron, was known for giving their time and talent to students and young professionals. Someone who is selfless in giving of their time to the community or nonprofit. It is our chapter’s way of honoring the memory and legacy of our dear friend. The deadline to nominate is January 31. You can download the nomination form here.

With our new board in place and ready to go, I have no doubt 2018 will be another amazing year. Happy Holidays and best wishes for the new year!

PRSA Alabama Chapter President 2017
