The Hispanic Public Relations Association (HPRA) has launched a new Miami chapter.
HPRA, established in 1984, is a resource for communications professionals and for individuals seeking Hispanic market expertise. The organization's mission also is to recognize the advancement of Hispanics in public relations through year-round programs, professional development seminars and networking.
"With a burgeoning local network of corporate, non-profit and government sector public relations practitioners serving the U.S. Hispanic and Latin America-facing markets, we anticipate the HPRA Miami chapter to become a very strong chapter," said Daisy Cabrera, HPRA Miami president and national HPRA board member, in a news statement. "Providing the expertise, resources, support and tools our members are seeking remains a top priority for HPRA chapters across the country, and we are excited to introduce our organization to Miami."
The HPRA Miami 2014 Board of Directors include: Cabrera, U.S. Hispanic Corporate Communications Expert and Media Trainer; HPRA vice president Sonia Diaz, U.S. Hispanic Practice Manager of Balsera Communications; HPRA treasurer, Krysten de Quesada, account manager with Pinta; and HPRA secretary, Ana L. Ruedaquintero, marketing manager for Vme Media.
During its annual PRemio Awards and Scholarship Gala, HPRA has awarded more than a quarter million dollars to date in college scholarships to full-time Hispanic students pursuing careers in communications, and honors public relations professionals, journalists and companies that stand above the rest, according to a news release.
