Dear PRSA Gulfcoast Friends,

Strength, resilience, perseverance, and adaptability are all words that come to mind when I think of our Collier County residents and our PR professionals who promote the excellent work that is going on in our community.  While we optimistically hoped for a return to normal as the COVID alpha variant wound down, we are geared up to combat the delta variant and adapt our plans again.

Our September program featuring the marketing and medical talents at NCH Healthcare System was intended to be an end-of-summer return to gathering together with our friends and colleagues. But as NCH has expertly pivoted to adapt, we will follow their lead and offer our program virtually.

Please be sure to watch our monthly diversity, equity, and inclusion video by our DEI chair, Pam Fultz. This month, we celebrate diversity by recognizing Hispanic Heritage Month and our Hispanic colleagues’ contributions to our profession. CLICK HERE TO VIEW

I invite you to connect with us at our monthly meetings, on social media, or feel free to email me at

Best regards, 
Cindi Withorn
