PRSA Board of Directors Responsibilities

Submission Deadlines for Officer and Director Applicants

The submission deadline for officer applications is Monday, May 1, 2017. In-person interviews with the PRSA Board of Directors will take place on Saturday, June 10 at PRSA Headquarters in New York City.

  • If any officer candidate is not selected by the Board of Directors for any of the 2018 open officer positions, that candidate’s application will be given to the Nominating Committee for consideration for a director position, only if the officer candidate indicated on their application that they would be willing to be considered for one of the open director positions for which they may qualify. This person would then be interviewed via video conference by the Nominating Committee along with all the other director applicants.

The submission deadline for director applications is Tuesday, June 13. Video interviews with the Nominating Committee will take place Saturday, July 29–Sunday, July 30.
