Our Golden Anniversary Committee is planning a year-long celebration with informative programs and other commemorative activities to recognize this 50-year milestone.

We will kick off with our March 21 luncheon at Tangier, featuring Rick Batyko, APR, Fellow PRSA, and Gretchen Fri, APR.

Rick is a National PRSA board member and former Akron Area Chapter president, and Gretchen is a former Akron Area Chapter president and former East Central District Chair. Both will look back on the history of public relations, including the forming of our local chapter, and share their insights on the future of our field as well.
