  • Call for Entry for the 2014 Pinnacle Awards!!

  • April 2014 General Meeting

From Your President

Sean Brickell, APR, Fellow PRSA

2014 President, PRSA Hampton Roads Chapter

It seems almost perfunctory that missives this time of year contain some reference to spring and rebirth.  While trying to avoid the cliché, I must admit that three noteworthy developments in our Chapter are praiseworthy.

Our Chapter’s annual Pinnacle Awards are open for entries.  Each year the best and sharpest campaigns and programs from our region are sent to a sister chapter for evaluation.  This year, our sister chapter of Southeastern New England in Rhode Island will determine our winners.  As quid pro quo, our Chapter will judge entries from the Tri-State District in the Connecticut Valley.

Entries can be submitted until 5 p.m., April 18.  Please see PRSA-HR’s website for details and entry forms.

Second, students at ODU have a 40-plus person chapter of PRSSA.  Led by Carol Powell, APR, these young women and men constitute the future of our profession.  Starting in April

, several of these PRSSA students will be attending our Chapter meetings.  Whether looking for excellent summer interns or simply lending a helpful vote of confidence, please take time to introduce yourself.

Also, four new members have joined our Chapter.  Let’s all welcome Melissa Jones of Free Agents Marketing, Angela Schaefer Lawler of Huntington Ingalls Industries, Anne Moeller of YMCA of South Hampton Roads, and Danny Rubin of Rubin Communications Group.

Spring, truly a time of growth.
