Thoth Awards

Purpose

The Thoth Awards Committee is responsible for spearheading the logistics for the Thoth Awards Gala, which will be held in September.

Named for the Egyptian god of communication, the Thoth Awards (pronounced "tot") recognize the most outstanding public relations programs and components developed and produced in the Greater Washington area and highlight the top accomplishments in PR tactics.

Committee members are responsible for various tasks including assisting the PRSA-NCC sponsorship committee in securing sponsors, writing the awards script, choosing the menu, promoting the event, and identifying potential speakers that are aligned with this year’s theme.

What We Do

The committee handles all aspects of specials planning – budget, design of invitations, decorations, entertainment, photography and video, promotion, and visuals. Committee members can be assigned to a sub-committee based on their experience and interest level.

Who We Are Looking For

Anyone who is interested in becoming more involved in the PRSA-NCC community and meeting new contacts. Committee members include professionals from associations, government, nonprofits, PR agencies, wire services, and consultants in the DC-area communication community.

Benefits of Committee Membership

  • Exposure to industry leaders, leading award winners, PRSA-NCC board members as well as stakeholders and supporters.
  • Experience in event planning – logistics and management as well as PR/marketing, social media, budgeting and accounting, and sponsorship.
