A memorial service for the late PR icon Chet Burger has been set for Saturday, May 7, at the Century Association's Club, 7 West 43rd Street, in New York at 2:30 p.m.

Burger, who died at 90 on March 22, is credited with building PR's recognition as a management function during his long career.

Guests are asked to RSVP by April 15 to Jim Arnold (james [at] jamesarnold [dot] com) as capacity is limited.

Wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served after the ceremony.

"On behalf of the whole family, we look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you soon," said a message from Chet's sons, Jeff and Todd Burger.
