Jenny Muir wins PR’s outstanding contribution award
The 2019 National President's Award recognising outstanding contributions to the public relations and communication profession and the Public Relations Institute of Australia (PRIA) was presented to Jenny Muir, chief counsel Primary Communication, at the recent National PRIA conference. The trophy is presented each year to a professional who has committed a great deal of time and effort to building and maintaining the PRIA as the leading national professional body for public relations and communication practitioners. Jenny Muir is one of our profession’s top advocacy strategists and for many years has made significant contributions to the PRIA, the Registered Consultancy Group and the overall profession. Jenny’s career spans more than twenty years across Australia and Asia, beginning in TV news and politics before specialising in communication strategy and counsel. Jenny was National President for the PRIA Board from 2016 until April 2018, and remained on the Board as Immediate Past President until November 2019, guiding the organisation through changes to ensure its continued renewal and relevance. She will continue to support the PRIA by guiding the Institutes’ advocacy program to government, and representing the profession internationally and as Executive Council member for the Global Alliance’s Asia-Pacific Council. Her dedication, passion and commitment to advancing our industry is evident to all who know, as she continues to work with Australian Governments, not-for-profit organisations, peak industry bodies, and global commercial organisations. The National PRIA President's Award was introduced in 1991 by Greg Ray to recognise both outstanding contributions to the PRIA and the support provided to the PRIA President during the year of the Award.
