Beatin the PR Blues was the theme of this years Public Relations Council of Alabama (PRCA) state conference and members came up with some winning ways to do just that at the 2002 Medallion Awards held Friday night.
Each year, the state organization of public relations professionals honors outstanding efforts in the field of public relations. A panel of public relations practitioners from outside the state judges entries based on planning, originality, creativity and effectiveness. Entries may receive a Medallion Award, an Award of Excellence or a Certificate of Merit.
This years winners include Montgomerys Susan H. Andres with the Alabama State Bar, who received a Medallion for LIFEPLAN 2001. This entry was also chosen as the PRCA Best of Show. The judges considered it to be the most outstanding of all the 166 entries received.
The awards were presented at the 2002 PRCA Conference held October 24-25. Hosted by the Montgomery chapter, the state conference was held at The Legends of Capitol Hill with more than 150 of the states top public relations professionals in attendance.
