Orlando Area Chapter Member Awards – Call for Nominations

The Orlando Area Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association is now accepting nominations for its two annual awards: Member of the Year and the Bob Davis Award.

The Member of the Year award recognizes one member of the Orlando Area Chapter who has made a significant contribution to the Association through outstanding leadership, demonstrated enthusiasm, extraordinary involvement and loyal support.

The Bob Davis Award is named in honor of Dr. Bob Davis, Ph.D., ABC, APR, CPRC, retired professor from the University of Central Florida who has given tirelessly to our Chapter and FPRA for over three decades. The Bob Davis Award honors an individual who has worked behind the scenes in the past year to support FPRA. It’s our way of recognizing an “unsung hero.”

Candidates must be nominated by someone in the profession. Please include a written narrative of no more than 500 words detailing why the person should be recognized, the accomplishments/contributions that illustrate why the candidate warrants consideration, and the inclusion of committee work and/or other FPRA involvement. Nominees must be active FPRA members in good standing. Individuals may not endorse more than one candidate per award. Nominations for members of our Board of Directors are appropriate.

Nominations should be sent to Orlando Area Chapter President Wendy Jo Moyer, APR at wjmoyer@bellsouth.net no later than Friday, July 29.
