Happy Holidays, Fellow PRSA Georgia Members!

It’s hard to believe that we’re coming to the end of another year. And as always, it’s been a busy one here at PRSA Georgia. We’ve accomplished a lot, including:
  • Delivering compelling professional development content through luncheons, seminars, special interest groups and our annual conference; we also hosted special programs at vibrant locations, including the brand new National Center for Civil and Human Rights (in partnership with the Black Public Relations Society) and the Atlanta Botanical Garden
  • Crossing the 900-member mark earlier this month for the first time in more than a decade; our chapter roster now includes 124 group members representing ten different employers
  • Welcoming new members through semi-annual special receptions
  • Pinning seven members to mark the successful completion of their accreditation (APR) journey; they join more than 150 other accredited PRSA Georgia members
  • Bringing PRSA to you by hosting nine PRSA in Your Neighborhood networking events throughout metro Atlanta
  • Going fully digital for our Phoenix Awards, streamlining the nomination process and eliminating binders, and celebrating the program’s 30th anniversary with record-breaking attendance at our annual Awards Celebration in November
  • Supporting our 10 sponsored PRSSA chapters throughout the state all year and hosting another successful Real World PR collegiate conference last February

None of this would be possible without the 100+ dedicated volunteers who make the second-largest PRSA chapter in the country the best chapter in the country. From our board members and assembly delegates, to our committee and special interest group co-chairs and hard-working volunteers, countless hours are devoted each year to advancing our profession. A special thank you to all of our partners and sponsors who support PRSA Georgia throughout the year.

Looking ahead to 2015, we will build upon our successes and work harder to deliver even greater value to you. The highlight of 2015 will be when the Georgia Chapter hosts the PRSA International Conference in Atlanta November 8-10. Rest assured, we’ll be sharing more details about this unique opportunity as we approach. We’ll need your support and involvement to make it a success.

On behalf of all of your friends at PRSA Georgia, we wish you the happiest of holidays and all the best in 2015!

Best regards,

Neil E. Hirsch, APR
PRSA Georgia 2014 President
