The Public Relations Consultants Association of India (PRCAI) has elected its new Managing Committee for 2006-07. Nandita Lakshmanan, CEO, The PRactice, has been elected the President for the coming year.

The President, Vice-President, Secretary and the four regional chapter heads constitute the Managing Committee, which will run the affairs of the Association.

Lakshmanan, the new President, said, “It will be our endeavour to take PR to greater heights and work towards representations of issues of the industry at the right forum. With active participation of all members in PRCAI this can be achieved.”

Welcoming comments of members attending the meeting on the future working of PRCAI, she said that the Association would work to create a right environment for member firms to leverage the tremendous interest global corporates evinced in India.

The Marketing Committee charter would be increasing the membership base, organising events and instituting awards to encourage greater participation and recognition for the profession, said a PRCAI release.
