Cincinnati Public Relations Firm President Founds PRAOA

Public Relations Agency Owners Association Founded
Former Cincinnati PRSA Chapter President, Cincinnati Public Relations Firm President Founds PRAOA
Newport, KY – March 7, 2009 – Eisen Marketing Group president Rodger Roeser, APR, has founded the Public Relations Agency Owners Association (PRAOA) in an effort to galvanize and give a collective voice to agency leaders across the country. Roeser, who is the host of the successful online radio show That Marketing Show and president of Greater Cincinnati’s largest public relations firm, says that the development of the PRAOA was in response to hundreds of agency leaders who have indicated that their voices are not being heard nor challenges being addressed by current professional organizations.
The new association is open to anyone, but encourages agency owners from small and large firms alike to get involved and join. There is no fee to join the PRAOA, which can be accessed via LinkedIn and at The association is designed to share best practice ideas and concepts with which agency leaders are constantly faced, and open discussions designed to address many of the unique challenges of firm owners.
“PRSA is a wonderful organization that I have dedicated nearly half of my career to and will continue to do so, however, much of the membership is rather young and not at a senior level facing ownership challenges and issues,” Roeser shared. “I don’t need to learn how to pitch the media, we owners need to understand and address key business issues and proactively confront those strategically for the growth and health of our firms and our clientele.”
Roeser indicated that the radio show will begin featuring PRAOA members addressing key topics and issues, and encourages agency owners to join in and share commentary via the LinkedIn section and suggest guest topics for That Marketing Show. A number of key advice and opportunity items for membership are forthcoming, Roeser added.
