President’s Corner | June 2017

The time has arrived for our annual Crystal Awards Gala. Each year, this is our opportunity to shine a light on the best work our profession offers our clients and businesses. As the world of public relations continues to change, this premier event recognizes our best practices, campaigns and individual awards that mark West Virginia as a leader in the field.

From individual projects to statewide campaigns, our PRSA Crystal Awards gives a place for agencies, individuals in corporations, freelancers and students to put their best work forward in competition. The Crystal Awards is on Wednesday, June 14th, is again at the Culture Center in Charleston, and will feature music by Bob Thompson and our emcee is Charlie Cooper. Please bring an item for public service initiative to help “the Backpack Blessings” program that feeds 400-500 children per week along Elk River communities. Please bring:

  • Cans of Spagetti-Os/Ravioli.
  • Cans of soup.
  • Individual serving packages of fruit cups, juice boxes, cookies, Sun Chips and Little Debbie snacks. Finally, please mark your calendars for our annual “PRSA at the Park” on Wednesday, July 12th. For this event, again generously sponsored by AEP, PRSA members can bring a friend who may be interested in joining PRSA for $10. This is a relaxing event in which we can network, have food and drinks while watching baseball at Appalachian Power Park. It is one of my favorite PRSA events each year.

Thank you for your membership and support of PRSA-WV, and I hope to see everyone at the Culture Center next month.
