A Call to Leadership

PRSA simply cannot be successful without the leadership of dedicated volunteers from across the organization. The highest level of volunteer leadership is the Board of Directors, and we have officially started the critically important outreach to members nationwide asking them to consider applying for officer or director positions. Applications from qualified members are due by Tuesday, May 5.

PRSA staff, the Board of Directors and the Nominating Committee have structured a process enabling members to evaluate the opportunities that exist for Board service, to assess their own prospects for leading PRSA at the policy/strategy/governance level, and to decide whether this is their year to apply for the Board. Board service is a substantial commitment, a substantially rewarding one, and should be carefully considered.

PRSA.org, MyPRSA, PRsay, Strategies & Tactics, member emails and webinars, and other PRSA channels will provide detailed information on Board requirements and responsibilities, and the nominations and election process. Interviews of officer candidates will be held at PRSA’s offices in New York City on June 6-7, and interviews of director candidates will be conducted via video on June 20-21. Election of the Board will occur at the PRSA Leadership Assembly in Nashville, Tennessee on Saturday, Oct. 24.

We’re counting on qualified candidates who can make a meaningful difference for PRSA and the profession. Might you be one?
