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.

Marci Davis is the Chapter Champion for October, recognizing nearly 20 years of active service and leadership. In one of her earlier roles, she was Assistant Editor of our Chapter’s magazine “The Practitioner,” helping it to win a Phoenix Award! In recent years she has Co-Chaired committees including Annual Conference, Public Relations, Website and currently Membership, where she leads focused content development for recruitment and retention.

“Serving as an active volunteer and leader in PRSA Georgia has been a key component of my professional development and growth for many years,” Marci said. “On top of the outstanding programming that introduced me to best practices when transitioning from journalism to PR, getting involved really boosted my ability to meet clients as a strategic counselor. Being exposed to and working on committees with other professionals who drive PR, communications, marketing, and more in organizations different from mine has deepened my expertise. Plus, I have an amazing network who ‘gets’ communications.”

Marci is an award-winning communications strategist with two plus decades of experience, including several years in broadcast news as a reporter and anchor. In her current role as Communications Practice Leader for Jacobs (a multinational solutions firm), she works with numerous public sector clients in Georgia and across North America on programs and projects in water, transportation, aviation, and local governments. Prior to Jacobs, Marci coordinated public relations, communications, and advertising in the non-profit, corporate, and PR agency arenas. She holds a BA in Journalism from the University of Georgia.
