As one of the three newest members of the Public Relations Global Network (PRGN), I’m proud to be a part of such a fantastic international public relations “family.” This past weekend, GroundFloor Media attained membership, along with CooperKatz out of New York and The Harrell Group in Dallas. For those of you who are not familiar with the network, PRGN is an international organization of leading independent, owner-operated public relations agencies working together to serve client needs with local knowledge and global reach. It is an invitation-only network with 40 member agencies and more than 50 offices worldwide based in the United States, Central and South America, Europe, Canada, Pacific Rim, South Asia and the Caribbean.
What does that mean for GroundFloor Media? It expands our reach not only in key specialty areas – including Hispanic marketing and investor relations – but also in key geographic areas – including Los Angeles; New York; Washington, D.C.; Brussels; Melbourne; and Singapore. Our partner agencies in PRGN are ready, willing and able to provide expertise and hands-on assistance when needed.
The two days of meetings were filled with professional development, including the hot topic of social media. It was very fulfilling to learn from and share with colleagues from around the globe, and I look forward to continued opportunities to do so! There are two meetings each year, with committee work feverishly taking place in between.
