An Annual General Meeting of Queensland Members of the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) will be held on Friday, 19 October 2018 at 12pm via teleconference.

Consider becoming more involved in your industry. Being part of the council provides great opportunities to ‘give back’ to help others and improve the standing of our industry. You could help to influence and lead the direction of public relations in Queensland and nationally.

The business of the meeting is:

  • The election of the Queensland Division President who also serves as a National Board Member/Director*
  • The election of the Division Councillors

Nomination details:

  • The requirement is a minimum of 6 and a maximum of 12 Division Councillors.
  • The vote for Divisional President and Councillors will be conducted at the AGM and each candidate may supply a brief policy statement and CV.
