PRSA Georgia's Chapter Champions
This award recognizes PRSA Georgia members who have gone the extra mile in service to the Chapter. The award is presented on a monthly basis, or as appropriate. Eligibility for the award includes all Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond the call of duty as a Chapter volunteer.
A successful chapter runs on the talents of its volunteers. The Chapter Champion Award recognizes the hard work of our dedicated members. All PRSA Georgia Chapter members who go above and beyond as Chapter volunteers are eligible. The Chapter Champion Award is presented at the Chapter’s monthly luncheon meeting.
Julie Broshar is the recipient of the June 2018 Chapter Champion Award for her dedicated volunteer work with PRSA Georgia. Since August 2016, she has led the Chapter’s Membership Committee’s weekly outreach to those whose PRSA membership has expired. With this role, Julie committed to personally contact members to let them know that our Chapter values them, and remind them of options for membership renewal. This ongoing effort has reached hundreds of members, and often provides feedback as to why a member may choose not to renew. That insight helps us to ensure that our Chapter continues to meet members’ needs. In addition to her work on the Membership Committee, she has served as an “In Your Neighborhood” host and a greeter at various Chapter events.
“I’d been searching for a good fit with a professional communication organization, and joined PRSA Georgia in 2013 at the advice of a colleague. While I’ve been an active member, it took a break in employment in 2016 to make time to serve on a committee. The experience has been both rewarding and a good opportunity to get to know other members as part of a smaller group. I highly recommend it, and to be recognized for that work is truly an honor.”
