What is public relations?
Public relations is the strategic management of relationships between an organization and its diverse publics, through the use of communication, to achieve mutual understanding, realize organizational goals and serve the public interest. (Flynn, Gregory & Valin, 2008)
CPRS Ottawa-Gatineau is governed by a volunteer board of directors, each of whom is elected to serve a two-year term. The president for the 2012-13 season is Keelan Green.
