Please join us in welcoming two new members to our Chapter, Shaw Adcock and Shareen Baptiste, MSE!

Shareen is Marketing Coordinator for Jones Edmunds & Associates, Inc. “I previously attended FPRA meetings and networking functions when I worked for the Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce, now known as the Greater Gainesville Chamber, and remembered how beneficial it was to remain up-to-date on industry trends and connected to other Public Relations professionals. Once I assumed my new role with Jones Edmunds, I immediately asked to join FPRA. It was an easy decision to make, considering all the benefits that come with membership.”

Shaw is the Director of Marketing and Communications for the Greater Gainesville Chamber. Shaw’s advice for new professionals: “Don’t view everyone else as someone who always knows what they’re doing. Once you realize there’s not a secret formula everyone else is following, you start to follow your instincts and knowledge.”
