Since it was founded by Lt. Col. John W. Dillin in 1938, the Florida Public Relations Association has been dedicated to advancing the public relations profession in the state of Florida. Over the years, the organization has cultivated a rich legacy and developed its own set of meaningful traditions. One of the reasons FPRA is able to maintain its position as an industry-leading organization, is that it doesn’t forget to look back:
Passing of the Gavel
This ceremonial-like tradition takes place every year during FPRA’s Presidents’ Luncheon held at Annual Conference. With each gavel pass, members are reminded of FPRA’s rich history and long line of leaders who have dedicated their careers to furthering the public relations profession and FPRA.

FPRA is known for helping professionals do their jobs better … and chocolate of course. FPRA’s founder Lt. Col. John W. Dillin loved chocolate. In celebration of FPRA’s founder and his many accomplishments, the Dillin Dessert presentation is made every year in John’s honor at FPRA’s statewide conference. The Dillin Dessert presentation is a highly anticipated event and is loved by all who experience it.
