The members, comprising of Public Communication practitioners, Corporate Communication consultants, Academics among others voted in new office bearers last evening during the Society’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at the Laico Regency Hotel.

During the AGM and Executive Committee polls, the immediate former President Ms. Jane Gitau, successfully managed to defend her seat, garnering majority of votes from the PRSK membership.

Alongside Ms. Gitau, other elected PRSK officials now include Vice President, Dr. Wilfred Marube, Secretary, Lilian Nganda, Treasurer, Arik Karani, Assistant Secretary Beatrice Kungu and Assistant Treasurer Michelle Anekeya. Other elected officials include Council Members Dr. Haroun Mwangi, Tim Kamuzu Banda and Alfred Ng’ang’a.

Speaking moments after the electoral process, PRSK President-Elect, Jane Gitau, who is also the Secretary General of the Africa Public Relations Association (APRA), pledged to spearhead ongoing efforts to further entrench the professional role of Public Relations in the public and private sectors.

The society, she said will actively pursue the necessary frameworks to further position the Public Relations (PR) practice as a critical professional discipline. Efforts to mobilise a higher active membership roll, she added, are also at an advanced stage.

“The new leadership team is committed to advancing the role of Public Relations as a functional management role and a critical national and economic development enabler,” Ms. Gitau said, adding that, “We shall be actively seeking to forge mutually beneficial partnerships and the much needed legislative recognition of the society even as we seek to recruit more members.”

Within the East African Region, PRSK is a member of the East African Public Relations Association (EAPRA).  PRSK is also a member of the Africa Public Relations Association (APRA), the continental body for all PR national associations in Africa.  At the global level, PRSK is a founder member of the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communications Management (GA) among other global bodies such as the International Public Relations Association (IPRA).

This year's summit's discussions were as disruptive as they were illuminative. From how Artificial Intelligence is going to be Public Relations practitioners intelligent assistant to the regulation debate. PR regulation isn't meant to punish or chase away rather to sanitise and professionalise the profession.
We also launched the PR Digest magazine (available on our website under the publications menu bar) and signed an MOU with Public Relations Association of Uganda - PRAU and Public Relations Society of Tanzania - PRST to among other things revive East African Public Relations Associations (EAPRA) and drive conversations regarding the image of the East African Community. Kenya will assume chairmanship for one year from 2020-2021 and will host the first EAPRA conference post the renewed collaboration.
Thank you #TeamPR for coming out in large numbers and your support in making the #prsksummit2019 a success. Next stop is Movenpick Hotel and Residences, Nairobi for the #prskawards2019 dinner. See you then
