Early this month, we held our second annual Chapter Recognition Awards Gala & Annual Meeting.
We were glad to have Carolyn Fennell, Senior Director of Public Affairs and Community Relations for the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority, serve as a powerful keynote speaker. In addition to sharing a case study on Terminal C and the airport’s expansion, she left us with some key takeaways regarding the value of collaboration, communication and sharing credit.
At the event, we also recognized several individuals whose work and dedication have been a huge part of our PRSA Orlando success story:
Communicator to Watch
Melissa Zayas Moreno, APR, Communications Manager for Walt Disney World
