PRSA|GA Annual Conference & May Luncheon

The PRSA GA May Luncheon, held in conjunction with the Annual Conference, featured a distinguished panel consisting of legendary PR professionals Harold Burson (Burson-Marsteller) [pictured above], Bob Cohn (Cohn & Wolfe) and Ofield Dukes (Ofield Dukes & Associates). The panel detailed the vast growth of the public relations field in the last half decade while also noting technology’s impact on the continued evolution of PR. PRSA GA President and Arketi Group Principal, Mike Neumeier, presented Charidy Vinson (Georgia Tech) with the monthly Chapter Champion award for her outstanding work and service to the chapter.

The Annual Conference comprised of numerous strategic sessions covering a variety of topics, including a session titled, "Social Media: Why You Can't Ignore Social Media's Impact on Public Relations." The session (pictured to the right), moderated by Mike Neumeier featured an interesting panel consisting of Lee Clontz (Emory University), Melissa Libby (Melissa Libby & Associates) and Sarah Molinari (The Home Depot). The panel detailed the recent emergence of social media and how its impact on PR has become an unequivocal part of the equation.
