GFW PRSA TO RECEIVE 2008 CHAPTER DIVERSITY AWARD
AT THE PRSA INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE LATER THIS MONTH
I have wonderful news to share with you!
According to the national office of PRSA, "during the 2008 National Assembly luncheon to be held later this month, Chapter Diversity Awards from the National Diversity Committee will be given and the GFW PRSA Chapter will be given an 'Award of Honor.' The Award is given to PRSA Chapters that embody and demonstrate key values in diversity as outlined by the mission statement and contribute to advancing diversity as seen by submissions of their best practices and/or case studies. These awards recognize local efforts as well as provide further support for continued achievements at the chapter level.
"PRSA continues to promote educational outreach programs for members and the public relations industry by using diversity as a smart business strategy to gain and maintain a competitive edge in today’s diverse marketplace."
Long-time GFW PRSA member Glenda Thompson is the 2008 Chair of the GFW PRSA Diversity Committee and has done an outstanding job leading the Chapter's efforts. GFW PRSA Member Dora Tovar will accept the award on behalf of the chapter. Along with Thompson and Tovar, other GFW PRSA Diversity Committee members include Tom Burke, APR and Amiso George, APR.
Special thanks goes to Ken Reeves from Bell Helicopter-Textron, Leah King from Chesapeake, and Mitch Hill from Baylor for their involvement with the diversity presentation earlier this year. Also, an additional word of appreciation is extended to all GFW PRSA members who were a part of the More Life! Festival project, a component of the Chapter's diversity efforts and one of our community service projects this year.
Every member of the GFW PRSA Chapter can take great pride in celebrating this very significant honor.
Please join me in congratulating Glenda and the entire GFW PRSA Diversity Committee on this very special award.
