One of PRSA Maryland’s newest volunteers is David Harrison, owner of Harrison Communications in Owings Mills, Md. David was PRSA-MD’s 2013 Best In Maryland chair and is co-chair of this year’s event.

As a self-proclaimed “news junkie,” David was a professional journalist for 10 years, working mainly at the American Banker and the Baltimore Business Journal. His transition into public relations began in 1999 when he took a job at Imre, specializing in communications for associations, then later moved onto owning his own PR firm.

One of his proudest PR moments was working on a story with Jean Moss at CNN, who covered an exhibit at the American Urological Association. In David’s words, “It was the first, and maybe only, time she’d left New York to cover a story, and she did a great job.”

Outside of “trying to get to every lacrosse game and practice” to see his (SON/DAUGHTER) play, David’s main hobby is fishing. When asked what he hopes to accomplish in his role in PRSA-MD this year, David replied, “I want the chapter to become more vibrant and active, with a good mix of senior level and younger communications professionals.”
