Dr. Kevin S. Trowbridge, assistant professor of public relations, joined with about 100 leaders from across the United States June 14-15 to participate in the 2013 Leadership Rally hosted by the Public Relations Society of America in New York.
The two-day event brought together current and future leaders of the society to discuss leadership, board management, programming, financial management, recruitment and retention. PRSA is the world’s largest and foremost organization of public relations professionals with nearly 22,000 members, divided into 10 districts and more than 100 chapters.
Trowbridge, who serves as chair-elect for the PRSA Southeast District, will assume the role of district chair in 2014. The Southeast District includes 11 chapters in Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee, representing about 2,000 PRSA members.
He has been actively involved in local and district leadership roles with PRSA since 2005. In addition to these leadership positions, he is the new faculty adviser for Tower Creative Consultants, the student-run public relations firm of Belmont’s award-winning chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
