Egypt's jailing of three journalists for seven years on bogus charges has been called "farcical," "draconian," etc. An exact parallel exists in the U.S. where PRSA bars reporters on inane charges.
Howard Schultz, CEO of Starbucks, named one of "Most Ethical Retailers" by Ethisphere Institute, has the power to end the PRSA press boycott. His VP of corporate communications is co-chair of the Society's conference in D.C. Oct. 11-14.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans died so that not only their fellow Americans but citizens in numerous other nations would have rights such as due process before being denied anything and the right to face accusers.
PR Society of America's 2013 income was less than it was in 2006; member total is where it was in 2000; only $1,057 was spent on "ethics in 2013," and $423K CEO Bill Murray suddenly quit. But no one's interested in this story (except us).
Stephanie Cegielski, VP-PR of PRSA, has cited, as a reason for denying us membership in the Society, the 35 charges that were in a 23-page document dated Sept. 1, 2011. It “clearly lays out why you are unfit to be a member of our organization,” she said in an e-mail April 11.

The 110 chapters of PR Society of America can take the bull by the horns by running the search for a new staff executive. The search committee should be ten chapter presidents.
Bill Murray, the resigned CEO of PRSA, was the worst Society staff head we have experienced since 1968--temperamentally and physically unsuited for the job. This mistake must not be repeated.
