"PRSA-NY is the leading organization dedicated to advancing

brings a wealth of professional insight, association management,
mentoring and dynamism to everything she does, and PRSA-NY is delighted
to have her in this leadership position as we enter 32 years of service
to our members and colleagues across the metropolitan New York area."

"I have a deep commitment to our profession and to PRSA-NY," says Ms.
Gottlieb. "Professionally, I am an expert in integrated strategic
communications and marketing for leading nonprofit organizations, such
as the Red Cross. My expertise includes digital and social media
strategy, e-marketing, fundraising, top tier and niche media, branding
and crisis communications. As President-Elect I will bring these skills
to the chapter."

In the coming months Ms. Gottlieb will be studying PRSANY's priorities
and initiatives such as diversity and inclusion. In addition, building
on the momentum of this year's very successful Big Apple Awards, she
will also focus on such fundamentals as fiscal priorities, memberships
and creating new partnerships and alliances.
