PRSA Georgia's Chapter Champions
This award recognizes PRSA Georgia members who have gone the extra mile in service to the Chapter. The award is presented on a monthly basis, or as appropriate. Eligibility for the award includes all Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond the call of duty as a Chapter volunteer.
Wayne Roberts is the recipient of the September, 2014 Chapter Champion Award for his dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. Wayne, who first joined the chapter in 1989, is currently serving on the Professional Development Committee and has been involved in determining the programming for this year's monthly meetings and seminars. He has also had a key role in the Chapter's Group Membership program by helping new group members assimilate into the fabric of PRSA Georgia.
"After a much too long hiatus, I was eager to reconnect with the Georgia Chapter because I missed contributing to an organization that has played an integral role in my professional development, especially soon after moving to Atlanta more than 25 years ago," he says. "Serving members by helping to organize topics of interest and guest speakers is my small way of giving back to PRSA in return for everything the chapter has done for me."
Wayne is Senior Vice President at Porter Novelli, where he works with clients including General Electric and Hewlett Packard. Wayne's career began in workplace communications with Digital Equipment, followed by Apple Computer and includes three technology start-ups. He holds a Master's in Mass Communications and an Honors Bachelor's in Political Science from the University of Western Ontario, where he serves on the school's graduate advisor committee. Wayne also has a Bachelor's in Industrial Relations from McGill University.
