Welcome 2010 (and for many of you, I’m sure, good riddance to 2009)!
Despite the very challenging economy, your Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), Gulf Coast Chapter remains active and engaged. It is my goal as your President to make sure that PRSA remains relevant for our profession.
I am truly honored to serve with such a talented and supportive group of officers and directors representing Collier AND Lee counties. I hope that you will join us on Tuesday, January 26th to personally welcome your new 2010 Board of Directors.
Speaking of our January program, we will host a timely and informative panel discussion on “The New News & Citizen Journalism” featuring top editors of the Naples Daily News and Fort Myers News-Press. Further details are listed below.
Again, best wishes for a healthy and prosperous New Year!
Clay W. Cone
President, PRSA Gulf Coast Chapter
