FPRA 2011 Annual Conference: Passing of the Gavel

Participants (pictured from right to left) were Joseph J. Curly, APR, CPRC (1982); Bob E. Gernert, Jr., APR, CPRC (1985); Frank Polito, APR, CPRC (1997); Lynn Schneider, APR, CPRC (1999); Rick Oppenheim, APR, CPRC (2000); Kathleen M.

    A grand bunch of folks. Wish I could have been there to join you.

  2. Frank Polito says:

    We missed you Dr. Jay.

  3. Jay Rayburn says:

    These clowns can’t even line up correctly. The oldest president present (and that’s Joe Curley for years and years and years) is to the audience’s RIGHT. Jeez, I’m gone one year and you can’t get it right!
