Angie Champsaur, APR is the recipient of the January 2016 Chapter Champion Award for her dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. She served on the Chapter’s Accreditation Committee and is a committee co-chair for 2016. As part of the Certificate in Principles of Public Relations team in 2014-2015, she helped pilot a marketing campaign to promote the new Certificate program offered by PRSA National. This program allows college seniors to study for and obtain the Certificate in Public Relations through PRSA, a precursor to the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) credential. The teams’ efforts increased awareness among Georgia students about the Certificate and how they can set themselves apart from the competition upon graduation. Most recently, Angie also helped coordinate an APR Boot Camp during the PRSA 2015 International Conference in Atlanta this past November.
“I decided to become involved with the Georgia Chapter because it fosters the advancement of our profession in every way,” said Angie. “It’s a great organization to plug in to and benefit from, whether it’s learning about the latest industry trends or connecting with local, leading PR professionals. I’ve made some impactful connections and friendships that I will grow for years to come. We have such a strong chapter, and it’s rewarding to volunteer and give back what I have also gained.”Angie is a field public relations manager for global staffing firm, Robert Half, where she oversees media relations and communication strategies for the organization’s various brands across 10 states. With nearly 15 years of experience in public relations and communications, she has worked in the digital media, television, government and non-profit sectors, including her previous role as media relations specialist for Defense Video & Imagery Distribution System (DVIDS) to connect the media and the military serving worldwide. Angie holds a bachelor’s degree in mass communications from Jacksonville State University and was accredited in public relations in 2014.
