Board Approves Bylaws Changes

by Fred Morgan

The new Pikes Peak Chapter board of directors approved changes to its chapter bylaws during its first meeting of the year.  Changes included:

  • The right to serve as a professional advisor to a Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) chapter was changed from a requirement to be accredited to those members who have five years of public relations experience and/or are accredited.  This brings our local policy into compliance with national PRSA policy.
  • The chapter’s Leadership Assembly Delegate was changed from a non-voting to a voting member of the board.  This change reflected the fact that this position is an elected verses an appointed member of the board.
  • A new requirement was established that candidates for chapter president must have been a member of PRSA for at least three years.  This ensures a minimum level of chapter experience before taking over our top leadership position.
  • A new standing committee, community outreach, was established.  The community outreach chair manages the chapter’s bro bono public relations support to non-profit community organizations.

Updated chapter bylaws will go into effect once approved by the PRSA national board of directors.
