Applications Being Accepted for New Inductees
of Ag PR Hall of Fame
Nominations are now open for the Agricultural Public Relations Hall of Fame, an award program honoring agricultural public relations professionals who have made lifetime contributions to the industry.
The program, sponsored by the Agricultural Relations Council and Agri Marketing magazine, will recognize its second group of recipients at the March 2013 ARC annual meeting in Oklahoma City, Okla. Nominations will close Jan. 15, 2013.
Nominees must be current or past members of ARC to be considered. Inductees will be selected based on criteria including:
“We had a tremendous launch of the Hall of Fame earlier this year, and I have no doubt we will be inducting another stellar class of honorees next spring in Oklahoma City,” said ARC Board President Mace Thornton, of the American Farm Bureau Federation. “This is the single-best opportunity for the industry to recognize the professionals who’ve shaped agricultural public relations.”
Two honorees were chosen for the inaugural class: Don Lerch, a founding member of ARC; and Lyle Orwig, co-founder and current CEO of Charleston│Orwig. Lerch and Orwig were inducted during ARC’s annual meeting last March in Charleston, S.C.
For 2013, up to two inductees will be chosen. Nominations will be reviewed and chosen by a committee of ARC members.
“We hope all members of the agricultural communications community will consider nominating a deserving individual,” said ARC Hall of Fame committee chair Deron Johnson, of Pfizer Animal Health. “Recognition of this type not only honors the individual, but validates all of the professionals who work in agricultural public relations every day.”
For additional questions, please call the ARC office at: 952/758-5811. Or review the nomination form on the ARC web site at: www.agrelationscouncil.org. E-mail ARC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
