Ev Clay Endowment Luncheon
This committee was established to handle chapter recognition programs for outstanding service to the chapter and profession. Each year, the Chapter presents the Bill Adams PRSA Lifetime Achievement Award, the PRSA Royal Palm Award, and the Communicator of the Year Award. These awards are presented at the chapter’s Ev Clay/PRSA Miami Chapter Endowment Luncheon in October, where numerous scholarships are presented to deserving students. Established in 1985 in memory of Miami public relations pioneer Everett A. Clay, the Ev Clay/PRSA Miami Chapter Endowment Fund is the largest and perhaps oldest scholarship fund in the nation operated by a PRSA chapter. The committee is responsible for the logistics of the event, registration, budget and marketing materials.
