Dear KYSPRA Colleagues:
I’m excited to share that KYSPRA has received a 2015 Mark of Distinction Award and has been named an Exemplary Chapter by the National School Public Relations Association. The award is based on the Special Focus Area: Professional Development/PR Skill Building and a focus on value-added membership.
The official letter from NSPRA Executive Director Rich Bagin, APR states, “The judges were impressed with the comprehensive year-long program and KYSPRA’s continued efforts to provide quality professional development and support for members that is timely and relevant, and that addresses a variety of communication topics.”
As recipients of this honor, KYSPRA will receive the following incentives:
A $200 discount certificate for one 2016 Chicago Seminar registration;
One PR Power Hour in 2015-16;
And a copy of NSPRA’s Rubrics of Practice and Suggested Measures benchmarking resource.
In addition, KYSPRA may now use the “Mark of Distinction” logo on its website, letterhead and other chapter publications.
KYSPRA will receive the Mark of Distinction, Exemplary Chapter certificates at the Nashville Seminar on Sunday, July 12, at 1:00 p.m. during the Annual Meeting & Celebration of Achievement.
I’d like to say a special thank you to the Board of Directors for all of their work throughout the year planning and leading professional development sessions, attending and brainstorming at meetings, assisting with membership surveys and sharing information on the KYSPRA blog and Twitter. I would also like to thank all members for participating in KYSPRA activities and events, sharing great work and projects, and for providing feedback to add value to the organization.
Congratulations to all for a GREAT 2014-15 year in Kentucky school public relations!
KYSPRA President, 2014-15
