At its quarterly meeting this week, the 17-member Board of Directors of the Public Relations Society of America voted to renew the employment contract of PRSA president and chief operating officer William M. Murray, CAE, through December 2014.
As the top staff member at PRSA, Murray has worked closely with PRSA's chair and CEO, its Board of Directors and volunteer leaders to transform the organization in significant ways, the org reports. "Bill's extraordinary knowledge of, and dedication to, effective association management is a huge asset for PRSA," said PRSA chair and CEO Rosanna M. Fiske, APR, in a news release. "With his experience and commitment to enhancing the partnership between staff and volunteers, Bill has been able to implement a number of positive changes at the Society, while simultaneously managing operations during an extremely difficult financial period." In the past two years under Murray's leadership, PRSA has increased the scope and number of benefits it delivers to members, while cutting $1.5 million in operating expenses from its budget, keeping membership levels stable and meeting or exceeding the Society's financial goals, the org said.
