Logo Refresh & Tag Line
It’s been a few years (even decades) since the SPRF logo was created.
We want to keep our name and:

SPRF is inviting you to submit a proposal for this project no later than Friday, March 29, with final work completed by Friday, June 28. Proposals should be no more than two pages excluding budgets, timelines and references, and should include previous logo design work.
We would like to unveil the new logo/branding at our annual conference at the end of September.

May 13: Initial Designs and Tagline Due (requesting three options of each)

New Member Spotlight
Booz Allen Hamilton
From flight deck airman, reporter, magazine copy editor, to college professor and marketing/public affairs specialist, PRCA member Neil Probst’s career has been as varied as it has been interesting! The longtime PR professional recently renewed his membership in PRCA Montgomery Chapter and explained why he felt it was important to do so.
“I’m so grateful to be back in PRCA,” said Probst. “I returned primarily because I am seeking accreditation in public relations, but, more than that, it’s a pleasure to return to colleagues I missed from my first experience in the Montgomery chapter about 10 years ago.”
Probst currently works as a public affairs and outreach specialist for Booz Allen Hamilton and as a contractor for the Air Force Center for Strategic Deterrence Studies on Maxwell Air Force Base.
“My favorite thing about public relations is the awareness that the audience comes first. Once we identify our company’s or client’s publics, then we can go about discovering how best to serve the needs of these audiences, ultimately strengthening our company or client in the short-term and for years to come,” he said. “My career has had some roller coaster turns, but when each chapter ends it leads to new beginnings, new experiences, and new learning. Life is truly a journey. We can learn and grow until the very end.”
