PRSA Mid-Atlantic District Mixer and Meetings a Big Hit in Atlanta
Central PA Chapter Plays a Leading Role
The Mid-Atlantic District mixer and meetings during the PRSA International Conference in Atlanta, Ga. attracted members and students from Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania and Delaware.
“We had a blast getting to know each other better and learning from one another,” said PRSA Central PA President and Mid-Atlantic District Chair Liz Smith, APR, MBA. “We are fortunate have such and active chapter and to be in the district with the most members in the country.”
The mixer was scheduled right before the Sunday Gala at the Marriott’s Pulse Bar on Nov. 8 to attract a record crowd. Whether members were going to the gala or not, people had the chance to meet one another and get up to date on district and chapter happenings.
During the district meeting, new chapter officers were elected for 2016: Kevin Gaydosh, APR, chair; Mitchell E. Marovitz, Ph.D., APR, chair-elect; Laura LaChapelle, APR, MBA, treasurer; and Liz Smith, APR, MBA, former chair and National nominating committee member. The district is close to nominating a person to fill the officer role of secretary.
“We are working on plans for PRSA Mid-Atlantic District Quick Start for chapter leadership training, which will be scheduled in early 2016 in Springfield, Va., and our second PRSA Mid-Atlantic District Boot Camp will be April 6 to 9, 2016 in Richmond, Va.,” Smith said. Watch for details.
