The holiday season will be here before we know it. I’m sure I’m not the only one counting down the days until this crazy year is over. Before everyone starts creating holiday menus and gift-giving lists, I wanted to share a few announcements:
I hope you all saw that our very own, Kathy Barbour, APR, was inducted into the PRSA College of Fellows last month! Her North Florida PRSA family could not be more proud of her incredible accomplishment. She is truly an asset to the field of public relations. I also have the pleasure and privilege of working with Kathy at Brooks Rehabilitation so I am doubly blessed.
And speaking of assets to the field of public relations, I would like to officially welcome our 2021 North Florida PRSA Board Members:
Lauren Venoy, M.S., APR – President
Maria Coppola, APR, CPRC – President-Elect
Natalie DeYoung – Treasurer
Ilyssa Drumm – VP, Programs
Audrey Laine Seymour – VP, Membership
Mark Brown – VP, Communications
Vanessa Blanc – Secretary
Sarah Brown, APR – Accreditation Chair
Jill Matejcek – Immediate Past President and Ethics Chair
Greg Willis – Web Administrator and Communications Council
Grace Stoyshich – Hospitality Chair
Please join me in congratulating this outstanding group!
If you would like to be more involved with PRSA, we are looking for committee members for next year. Committees include: Hospitality, Membership, Programs, Ethics, Accreditation, Communications, Sponsorships and Professional Development. Just ask any of our Board members for more details.
As we approach Thanksgiving, I want to share my appreciation for all of you and for your continued commitment to our field. I hope you all have a magical holiday filled with good food and surrounded with (socially-distanced) love from family and friends.
