WASHINGTON, D.C. (Jan. 10, 2019) — The Public Relations Society of America’s National Capital Chapter (PRSA-NCC) today announced the selection of RMK Productions (RMK) to offer strategic counsel, support day-to-day organizational activities and provide best-in-class customer service to PRSA-NCC’s more than 1,100 members.
The selection of RMK, a full-service, woman-owned association management and event planning company, follows the retirement of executive director Sherri Core, a 30-year veteran of the organization.
PRSA-NCC requested proposals from several association management firms in mid-2018. RMK, which helped coordinate PRSA-NCC’s annual Thoth Awards over the past three years, received the nod from the organization’s board in November.
"We're thrilled to be working with Reggie, Scott, Jessica, and the rest of the RMK team,” said Stacy Hope, president of PRSA-NCC. “Sherri Core set a high bar in terms of service and commitment to our chapter and our profession. In RMK, I'm confident that we have found a partner to continue Sherri's tradition of excellence, and I look forward to working with them to provide an outstanding experience to PRSA-NCC members."
RMK currently serves nine other associations with memberships ranging from 250 to more than 1,200, including Women in Technology and the HR Alliance DC. Principal Reggie M. Kouba notes that the RMK’s 13-year history and ability to scale with clients’ needs will benefit PRSA-NCC.
“One of RMK’s key differences is our team comes primarily from corporate and consulting backgrounds, which brings a real business discipline to how we deliver services,” Kouba said. “By combining our backgrounds with our practical experience helping clients with everything from producing exciting events to applying best practices to technology implementations gives us and our clients a high confidence level in our strategic counsel and tactical implementation skills.”
RMK started its work with PRSA-NCC on January 1.
