The national peer group enables collaboration and the exchange of meaningful business counsel, best practices and industry trends among owners and leaders of PR agencies.

Ghidotti has served at the national level of PRSA for many years – first as the chairman of the Independent Practitioners Academy, then as a three-member leadership team overseeing National PRSA’s Section Council and currently on the Counselors Academy Executive Committee. She is also a past president of PRSA’s Arkansas Chapter and recipient of the chapter’s Crystal Award, honoring members who have made significant contributions to the PR industry and PRSA.
