Please join me in congratulating Kirk Hazlett, APR, Fellow PRSA, who was nominated by the PRSA National Nominating Committee this past weekend to be the official candidate to take over for Gail Winslow-Pine, APR on the PRSA National Board when her term ends this year.
Anyone who has been active in the Northeast District for the past decade likely knows Kirk. He has been an active leader in PRSA Boston and the Northeast District and has served as a PRSA liaison for more than a dozen Massachusetts colleges.
If you do not know him, Kirk has practiced nonprofit and government public relations and marketing for more than 35 years in the US as well as Asia. Before moving into education, Kirk managed communication programs for healthcare and member services organizations as well as the US Army and US Air Force in Vietnam, the Philippines and the United States, and he has provided consulting services for both the Manila and the Singapore Red Cross.
Accredited by the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), Kirk has held leadership positions with PRSA Northeast District and with the Boston and Hawaii PRSA chapters. He is Director-at-Large for PRSA’s Educators Academy and serves as a judge for PRSA’s nationally-acclaimed “Silver Anvil Awards” and the Publicity Club of New England’s “Bellringer Awards.” He is currently an Assistant Professor of Communication at Curry College.
The nominees will stand for election by a vote of the PRSA Leadership Assembly on Oct. 16 at the PRSA International Conference in Washington, D.C.
