“A strength I’ve appreciated at PRSA GA is that even when I travel an hour-and-a-half to attend a Chapter function, I still feel at home and instantly engage with the group when I get there. The membership and leadership are inclusive, hospitable, aware and oriented to meeting the needs and serving the interests of all their members.”

My most beloved memory was being named to our inaugural 40 under 40 class in 2019. That was a life and career affirming moment for me. It signified that my body of work in the PR community was strong and that I truly was a professional in our industry, committed to authentic storytelling.”

“Although I’m located in the metro Atlanta area, I’m not in the same city as the Chapter’s headquarters. This doesn’t stop me from maximizing my membership. By participating in webinars, and the Phoenix awards, I keep in touch locally. And, I rely on the Counselor’s Academy as a brain trust for management processes and procedures.”

“PRSA Georgia is a great way to stay connected with resources at the local level and with the national organization, too. The PRSA Georgia conference alone is worth the membership in the local chapter. Having insights and connections from professionals in our state is extremely valuable.”
