Jolly Good Fellows

October 27, 2008

The Public Relations Society of America’s College of Fellows has inducted a record 19 new members in its 2008 Class.

It is a tremendously proud moment for each of the inductees, leaders who make a difference in the profession and in our lives.

I am proud to say that I am one of the 455 fellows from among 22,000 PRSA members.

According to the PRSA Bylaws, to be considered for the College of Fellows a member of PRSA must have practiced or taught public relations for 20 or more years, demonstrated superior capability as a practitioner or educator, exhibited personal and professional qualities that serve as a role model, and advanced the state of the profession. Criteria also include being an Accredited Public Relations (APR) practitioner, which requires passing rigorous oral and written examinations involving a depth of knowledge in the strategic analysis of public relations issues including program, research, ethics, legal issues, communications and other areas.

Hip hip hooray!
