Vice President of Programs,
Atlanta Black Public Relations Society

When the Atlanta
chapter of the Black Public Relations Society (BPRS) recently appointed
Tyre Sperling to the post of vice president of programs, a strong
statement was sent to the remaining members of the organization. From
that point forward, the visibility of the organization and their focus
on increased membership was going to be moved to the top of their
priority list. Sperling, a member of BPRS since 2002, has had a
long-standing love affair with African Americans in the PR arena. By
accepting the position, Sperling positioned himself perfectly to be
able to spread his infectious passion for the industry with the rest of
his colleagues.

“I’m definitely excited about this
opportunity,” Sperling explains while flashing a confident smile.
“There are so many talented African Americans within this profession,
so the opportunity to be a major part of bringing more of us together
in a positive way was something that I had to jump at.”

In this new role, Sperling will be responsible for driving the overall
programming of the Atlanta-based nonprofit organization, as well as
identifying and recruiting panelists for monthly membership programs. A
graduate of Florida A&M University’s School of Journalism and
Graphic Communication, Sperling has seen firsthand the positive impact
of BPRS not only on his career, but the careers of his colleagues as
well. “The Black Public Relations Society has definitely played an
important role in my growth as a professional,” he reveals. “You can’t
understate the power of being surrounded by such a talented group of
your peers. I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.” – dewayne rogers
