Chapter Champion Award

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.

A successful chapter runs on the talents of its volunteers. The Chapter Champion Award recognizes the hard work of our dedicated members. All PRSA Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond as Chapter volunteers are eligible. The Chapter Champion Award is presented at the Chapter’s monthly luncheon meeting.

Kim Resnik, APR is the October Chapter Champion, recognizing many years of dedicated volunteer service to the Chapter. She is currently Co-Chair of the Chapter Awards Committee where she has helped to rework the nomination and judging process for these annual awards. She has also served as a Board member, Assembly Delegate and on a range of committees including Professional Development and the Website committee, where she helped to lead the Chapter’s website relaunch project which was a significant undertaking. 

“As a PRSA Georgia member for nearly 30 years, I have learned so many skills and updated practices from our Chapter’s professional development activities,” Kim said. “The friends and professional connections I’ve made have contributed enormously to my career path and inspired me to continually upgrade my public relations practices and to try new methods and directions.” 

Kim’s 30 plus year career in public relations, communications and marketing includes director positions at the Alliance Theatre, the Atlanta History Center, The Art Institutes and Gwinnett Technical College. She currently puts her skills to work consulting for professional services, higher education, and cultural non-profit clients through Kim Resnik Communications. She has led award-winning campaigns focused on multicultural outreach, the opening of the Atlanta History Museum, the Atlanta History Center’s participation in the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games Cultural Olympiad, an interactive exhibition of children’s toys and games, and a student fashion show at New York Fashion Week. Kim earned a bachelor’s degree in English and American Literature from Brandeis University and a master’s in Communications from Georgia State. She earned her APR in 2015.
