Governing Board Members

The Maine Public Relations Council depends on the commitment of a diverse group of Board and Committee Members, who work at many different types of private, nonprofit and business-service companies and provide a range of public relations specialties.

The Board meets on the third Tuesday of each month and dedicates separate time to work with their chosen committees to ensure the MPRC continues to be a valuable resource to Maine’s public relations professionals.
