2014 Letter from the Chair
As the PRSA College of Fellows celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2014, I am honored to serve as its chair and look forward to collaborating with our outstanding Executive Committee, our members, and the PRSA Board and professional staff to advance the College’s work.
We recognize and honor outstanding members of the Society with 20 years or more in the profession who have significantly advanced our chosen field. Furthermore, we provide leadership and support for PRSA through continued service to the Society in many ways, particularly in providing mentoring to active and aspiring professionals at all career stages.
If you know of a colleague who should consider applying to the College of Fellows, or if you are yourself interested, please do not hesitate to contact me or any Fellow. The Fellows site on prsa.org contains a number of tools to help you get started, and we have a committed organization we call the GoodFellows that volunteers to provide individual counsel to all applicants.
This year, the College of Fellows will update its three-year strategic plan in concert with PRSA’s strategic plan. We will continue our partnership with the educators’ community to conduct additional Learning to Teach sessions to prepare members considering transition to a teaching career. As has been tradition, Fellows will also create and sponsor a Master Class during the 2014 International Conference in Washington, D.C., and I welcome your suggestions on topics or speakers.
There in our nation’s capital, the evening of October 11, we will recognize the Silver Anniversary of the College of Fellows and induct the Class of 2014 in a formal celebration of excellence and service. Stay tuned for more details!
Anthony D’Angelo, APR, Fellow PRSA
2014 Chair, PRSA College of Fellows
