One of the things that sets the Public Relations Society of America apart from other professional organizations is their (our) commitment to ethics.
The PRSA Code of Ethics sets out principles and guidelines that uphold the core values of the ethical practice of public relations, including advocacy, honesty, loyalty, professional development and objectivity.

Plan to attend the next program which addresses a PR issue members rated highly in our most recent member survey: measurement, including media tracking and reporting the value of earned media. Our expert is Janice Essick, Regional Manager, Business Wire.
Also, we’ve scheduled a very special member (and prospective member) celebration for 5 p.m. Wednesday, October 2, at Burntwood Tavern in Mercato. Complimentary snacks and cash bar available as we celebrate with two GCC-PRSA Past-Presidents: Denyse Smith Mesnik as she receives the Geri Evans Award for Distinguished Service from the PRSA Sunshine District and Donna Heiser as she is recognized for 35 years as a member of PRSA.
If you are looking for a committee or board role in the Gulf Coast Chapter of PRSA, please let me or Catherine Bergerson know soon. The nominating committee is lining up the slate for 2020.
