The Counselors Academy is a national professional interest section of PRSA that focuses on the business of agency PR. Its entrepreneurial members are owners or senior managers of leading independent firms in the U.S. and Canada. The Counselors Academy’s programs foster networking, mentoring and learning.
Chapman has been at MP&F for 21 years and a partner since 2012. Her client teams have won numerous national awards, including a recent PRSA Silver Anvil for Red White & Food, the campaign to allow wine sales in Tennessee retail food stores.
“It’s an honor to work closely with agency industry leaders and learn from one another,” Chapman said. “I’m proud of the work PRSA does, and I’m looking forward to growing membership while ensuring we all continue to stay on top of trends in this ever-changing field.”
The section’s marquee event is the PRSA 2016 Counselors Academy Spring Conference, which will be held May 1–3 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Known for its robust networking and learning opportunities, the Spring Conference enables collaborative peer relationships in which meaningful business counsel, operational best practices and industry trends are shared and gained.
