The committee, led by Mickey G. Nall, APR, Fellow PRSA, PRSA 2013 Chair and CEO, selected nine candidates for open Executive Committee and Board of Director positions. The nominees will stand for election by a vote of the PRSA Leadership Assembly on Nov. 7 prior to the start of the PRSA International Conference, Nov. 8‒10, in Atlanta.
“The PRSA Nominating Committee was presented with an impressive group of applicants eager to serve on the 2016 Board of Directors,” said Nall. “We were excited to have such a large group of experienced public relations practitioners and leaders to select from including, for the first time, non-APR applicants for select positions. We are confident that with the selected leadership nominees, the Society will have a bright and prosperous future.”
Article VII, Section 5 of the PRSA Bylaws provides: Nominations may also be made by petition by at least 10 Leadership Assembly delegates and filed with the secretary of the Society at the PRSA Headquarters at least 30 days prior to the annual meeting (Nov. 7, 2015) of the Leadership Assembly. Immediately upon receipt of any such nominations, the secretary shall send a notice of such nominations to all members.
