On Friday September 12 I landed the position as President Elect of EUPRERA, the European Public Relations Education and Research Association. I will be starting my term in January 2015 and follow in the footsteps of esteemed colleagues like Ansgar Zerfass (U of Leipzig, Germany), Valérie Carayol (U of Bordeaux 3, France) and Emanuele Invernizzi (IULM, Italy).
The association currently has 472 members from 40 different countries, so it is a mixed lot. I will be working together with president Ansgar Zerfass, and newly elected board members Angeles Moreneo (U Rey Juan Carlos, Spain) and Ralph Tench (Leeds Met, UK). We all look forward to the EUPRERA congress of 2015 which will be held in Oslo at BI Norwegian Business School.
