Roswell Inc’s director of communications, Carisa Turner, APR, has been recognized as one of PRSA Georgia’s Forty Under 40 public relations and communications professionals for 2019.

PRSA Georgia is the second largest chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the nation’s largest professional organization serving the communications community.

In its inaugural year, PRSA Georgia’s Forty Under 40 program honors emerging leaders within the public relations and communications industry who excel in their field while also giving back to their industry and community.

Turner, along with the other Forty Under 40 recipients, was recognized during an awards celebration on April 25 at Emory University’s Miller-Ward House. Forty Under 40 honorees were nominated by their peers and selected by a committee of former PRSA Georgia Chapter presidents.

To be considered for the list, individuals had to be under the age of 40 (as of May 1, 2019), employed in a communications role with a Georgia-based company, and hold at least one corporate or civic leadership position.

The Forty Under 40 program is open to both PRSA Georgia members and non-members.

PRSA’s mission is to make communications professionals smarter, better prepared and more connected through all stages of their career. PRSA’s membership collectively represents more than 30,000 members comprising communications professionals spanning every industry sector nationwide and college and university students who encompass the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA).
