The award also requires Chapters to meet at least eight of 11 requirements from a list including community service work, attendance to PRSSA’s international conference and outreach to high school students.

Chapter President, Lauren Tritch, is humbled by the award as this marks the fifth consecutive year the Chapter has received the honor. “Our Chapter’s members have continuously held each other to high standards, so I’m thrilled to know our efforts are being recognized, especially as we’ve had to shift and adapt our Chapter plans due to the pandemic.
