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.

Jamie Cwalinski is our July Chapter Champion. A loyal volunteer leader within our chapter, this is Jamie’s third time earning the recognition since joining PRSA in 2011. Jamie currently serves as a co-chair of the Professional Development committee, helping develop and execute our monthly chapter events that highlight a wide range of topics and insights.

He previously served as board liaison for our Annual Conference and Chapter Awards committees and helped spearhead our first 40 under 40 ceremony in 2019 (in which he also was an honoree).

Jamie joined IHG Hotels & Resorts in 2022 as a Corporate Communications Manager, where he oversees content development, crisis and issues communication, and executive engagement and thought leadership programs for the Americas region. He graduated from the University of Georgia with dual degrees in public relations and sports studies.

Thank you, Jamie, for continuing to support PRSA Georgia!
