As a member of PRSA‘s Counselors Academy executive committee, I’ve been collaborating with Tactics editor John Elsasser for several months as a liaison of sorts to secure contributors for the publication’s monthly column called “Changing Times.” The column was started by Michael Herman, APR, Fellow PRSA, friend and mentor to many. There was no one better than Mike to write about changes in the public relations industry, but his only published column appeared in January 2015, the same month he unexpectedly left this world. Since then, members of PRSA’s Counselors Academy have been contributing their thoughts on the evolution of our profession.
When John asked me if we could write about what the new federal labor law means for PR agencies, we turned to long-time friend and trusted advisor to many Counselors Academy members, Michael Lasky of Davis and Gilbert. Thanks to Michael and his colleague, Jessica Golden Cortes, for this insightful article, Pay Pals: New Federal Overtime Rules Mean Change for PR Pros.
It is exactly this kind of issue that as a PR agency owner makes me turn to Counselors Academy for guidance. Want to know more about Counselors Academy and its members? Read our previous posts here.
