The Central West Coast Chapter (CWC) of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) was recently recognized during the FRPA’s 71st Annual Conference, held at the Boca Raton Resort & Club on August 10, with the state’s award for “Best Chapter Website”. Fifteen chapters of public relations professionals competed for the coveted recognition which was judged by an independent panel of technology and communication experts. This win marks the third year in a row that the CWC has won the “Best Chapter Website” award.
As acknowledged communications leaders within the FPRA and local business community, the CWC wanted to ensure their website would communicate their extensive events and benefits to members and non-members alike.In partnership with digital agency GravityFree, the CWC began the new website in 2008. “We wanted to help in building something that not only reflected the CWC’s public relations expertise, but also would bring direct value to their members”, said Scott Heaps, President of GravityFree.
The new website provides extensive information about the public relations profession, as well as upcoming events and presenter bios. The Job Bank, along with helpful advice from the Job Hunting Tips section assist PR professionals in developing their careers. The website offers endless opportunities for professional growth and presents the information in a way that is easy to find and beneficial.
The Central West Chapter of the Florida Public Relations Association is a network of innovative, passionate, and ardent PR professionals and associates, who are an active part of the oldest statewide public relations organization in the country and one of the largest and fastest growing chapters in the state.
