FPRA 2013 Annual Conference: Doris Fleischman Award
Congratulations to Cynthia Lambert, APR, the winner of the 2012-2013 Doris Fleischman Unsung Heroes Award!
The Doris Fleischman Award honors unrecognized contributions an individual FPRA member has made to the public relations profession and/or to FPRA. In essence, this is an “unsung hero” award intended to reward that individual who consistently provides support and assistance to the Association.
The award was established to honor the achievements and contributions of Doris Fleischman, business partner and wife of Edward L. Bernays, the “father” of public relations. It honors those FPRA members who, like Ms. Fleischman, make contributions to the field of public relations through consistent, tireless efforts. It is meant to honor a member for his/her “behind the scenes” work and FPRA volunteer efforts that go unnoticed by chapter members and are not recognized by other awards programs.
Since her entry into the public relations industry in 2006, Cynthia has proven herself as a self-starter, classic overachiever, and widely respected public relations practitioner by her peers. Her professional and volunteer work earned her recognition in 2007 as the Bob Davis Award recipient of the FPRA Orlando Area Chapter for her outstanding behind the scenes contributions and leadership roles in the local chapter. Her consistent dedication to the profession is exhibited in her work with FPRA – Immediate Past-President Melanie Mowry-Etters, APR, CPRC
