S.C. Chapter of PRSA Offers Free Counsel

ATLANTA The South Carolina chapter of the Public Relations Society of America is forming an ongoing effort that will allow nonprofit organizations to receive free public relations assistance, the group said.

The concept is called “PR Power Lunch,” and the SCPRSA will offer the expertise of senior-level public relations professionals who, over the course of a working lunch, will provide free counsel to applicants. Participants will learn how to publicize and market projects or issues decided upon by the nonprofit and its governing board.

In return for the free counsel, the organization will be required to provide meeting space and lunch, the group said. SCPRSA is accepting applications for the program via its Web site at www.scprsa.org.

“Our senior-level public relations practitioners are pleased to offer their collective talents and expertise to assist nonprofit and charitable organizations in serving the community,” said Elaine Gosnell, SCPRSA’s community relations chairperson.
