TORONTO, May 30, 2017 /CNW/ – The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) awarded David Eisenstadt, APR, FCPRS, FPRSA LM the 2017 CPRS Shield of Public Service after a unanimous vote by the CPRS Board of Directors and Awards Committee.
A founding partner of tcgpr – The Communications Group Inc, Eisenstadt was chosen for his commitments to the Mikey Network, a non-profit organization that works to raise awareness of heart-healthy lifestyles and the importance of public access defibrillators to save the lives of those at risk.
“Doing good and getting credit for it, one of the many definitions of public relations, is what David and the tcgpr team have provided,” said his nominator. “As one of this noble causes’ most enthusiastic champions, David’s unselfish, outstanding and continual dedication, makes him well deserving of the CPRS Shield of Public Service.”
The CPRS Shield of Public Service is presented annually to a CPRS member for their distinguished and dedicated service in the public interest, entirely apart from any contribution required by client or employer. Eisenstadt was one of nine Major Award recipients recognized for their exceptional involvement in the public relations profession at this year’s CPRS National Conference, taking place May 28-30 in Kelowna B.C.
