Don’t leave money on the table

“I don’t like free money,” said no one ever!
To give back to our members, we are offering two partial scholarships, one for Annual Conference and another for the LeadershipFPRA program.
Both applications are due by Thursday, June 9, and the board will select recipients during our June 10 board meeting.
If you’re interested in applying, fill out this Annual Conference scholarship application and click the “submit” button, and fill out this LeadershipFPRA scholarship application and email it to me at [email protected].
“At conference, you will receive a year’s worth of professional development in just a few short days, meet wonderful new friends and feel an amazing sense of pride to be part of the Ocala Chapter,” said President-elect Tammy Gantt, who has received an Annual Conference scholarship in the past. “If attending conference is meaningful to you, then apply. It doesn’t matter if you are new to the chapter or haven’t been involved in leadership yet.”  


  • FPRA’s 83rd Annual Conference, “Your Ticket to Success,” will be held at the Ritz-Carlton, Grande Lakes Orlando, Aug. 7-10. The early-bird registration deadline is July 11. Also book your hotel early; rooms will sell out. Full conference and single-day options are available – and you can attend the Cosmic PR Golden Image gala, even if you don’t plan to attend Annual Conference.
  • Led by the Ocala Chapter’s own Kevin Christian, APR, CPRC, the state association’s LeadershipFPRA program provides members with the tools they need to become stronger leaders in their organizations and communities. The program is formal, consisting of orientation and five full-day sessions held over12 months. Regardless of how new you are to the public relations profession or how long you may have practiced, this program will help you hone leadership skills good for a lifetime. Class size is limited to 21, applications are competitive and the deadline to apply is June 15.

You are #pros, and pros don’t leave money on the table.

With kindness,
Heather Danenhower, APR, CPRC
Ocala Chapter president
