Elections are indeed a complex process; you have to combine both the social being of mankind as well as the legal and scientific processes of determining why and who should lead the society. The Public Relations practitioners in Kenya had to go through this process on Monday evening to select the team that will lead the Kenya PR chapter- Public Relations Society of Kenya.
A typical PR practitioner is known to be witty, eloquent speakers and also agenda setters. The election forum was not an exception; issues were debated and argued about involving proxy voters for about an hour before participants opted for a vote on the issue.
The members finally resolved that only present members would vote for the team to move the profession to a notch higher.
However, them being voted as the torch bearers of this association did come with set targets and their job is already cut.

- Ensure that that they lobby and position Kenya as the next host of the World Public Relations Forum
- Position the Society as the home of PR in Kenya so that we can be able to attract membership especially for the young practitioners who have for a long time felt that the society doesn’t address their issues.
- As we move closer to the deadline of implementing the CPD point’s module, the executive team should ensure that members take up courses to improve their ratings.
