TORONTO, Dec. 7, 2018 /CNW/ - The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) announced Marc Angers, APR, FCPRS as the latest addition to its prestigious College of Fellows. The Society's newest Fellow will be officially welcomed by his peers during the annual College of Fellows luncheon on the first day of Evolving Expectations 2019.
"The College of Fellows includes some of Canada's best public relations professionals and communicators; each of whom are committed to advancing our profession and the status of the Canadian Public Relations Society," said Daniel Granger, L.LL., MBA, APR, FCPRS, Presiding Officer, CPRS College of Fellows. "As our newest member, Marc has shown himself, for many years, to be a thoughtful and inspiring leader in the PR community in Atlantic Canada as well as nationally and I will be pleased to officially welcome him to the College this June in Edmonton at the 2019 CPRS National conference."
Since 2000, the College of Fellows has recognized CPRS members who are proven leaders in the public relations and communications profession by bestowing them with its highest designation. With the announcement of Angers' fellowship, there are currently 100 members of the College of Fellows (FCPRS), plus 11 additional Honorary Fellows (FCPRS(H)).
"Marc's contributions to the profession are deep and broad. His work for the health system in New Brunswick as well as for the Université de Moncton led to transformational change in those institutions," said Alexandre Sévigny, PhD, APR, one of Angers' five endorsers. "I believe Marc will make an excellent addition to the College by contributing his francophone New Brunswick perspective.
