FPRA’s Counselors’ Network offers an unmatched association with not only the most experienced and well respected practitioners in the state, but also offers unprecedented access to the “who’s who” of our profession. Speakers have included Edward Bernays, Harold Burson, as well as numerous CEOs from Ketchum, Tylenol and Fortune 500 companies.
Along with the networking opportunities, CN offers one-on-one collaboration, two professional development retreat opportunities each year, one at the FPRA Annual Conference and a mid-year meeting, and provides a forum for senior members to give back to younger members through mentoring and the FPRA speakers’ bureau.
