Marci Davis is the recipient of the June 2015 Chapter Champion Award for her long-time dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. Marci originally joined the Chapter in 2002 and took a hiatus a few years later when her children were young. She served on the Chapter’s Annual Conference Committee for the past two years and was responsible for helping with Conference promotions including updating website content, drafting copy for weekly and other eblasts, and brainstorming with the committee on creative ways to generate interest and attendance at the conference. This was not her first time helping with the Chapter’s big event; Marci also served on the Annual Conference Committee in its early days in 2007. In addition, she was Editor-in-Chief for The PRactitioner, the semi-annual, award-winning magazine published by the Georgia Chapter from 2004 - 2006.
"I decided to become involved with the Georgia Chapter after making a career change from broadcast news to public relations and wanted to understand the strategies and tactics from another perspective. It’s even more important now that I operate in the technical arena of the A/E/C industry (architecture/ engineering/construction). Volunteering with the Georgia Chapter has also given me the opportunity to expand my skills on projects that aren’t part of my typical routine, and the connections are invaluable. I know I can reach out to other PR professionals on short notice to get help and advice.”Marci is Manager, Infrastructure and Strategic Communications at Jacobs Engineering and currently works directly with several Atlanta area utility clients developing and implementing strategic communications to help engage local communities affected by infrastructure programs. Prior to working in the consulting engineering industry, Marci worked in the financial and nonprofit sectors and got her start in broadcast journalism. She earned a BA in Journalism from the University of Georgia.
