The Public Relations Society of America’s National Capital Chapter (PRSA-NCC) inducted Danny Selnick into the National Capital Public Relations Hall of Fame at PRSA-NCC’s 51st Annual Thoth Awards Luncheon and the 20th anniversary of the Hall of Fame, Friday, September 27, at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
The Thoth Awards celebrate the best in communications, marketing and PR in the D.C. region, states PRSA-NCC.
PRSA-NCC started the National Capital Public Relations Hall of Fame in 1999 by inducting 50 leaders with significant accomplishments in the public relations field as part of the chapter’s 50th Anniversary celebration. The Hall of Fame members hold more than a thousand awards, distinctions, honorary degrees, advisory positions, charity board seats, and Who’s Who citations among them.
“The PRSA-NCC board of directors joins me in congratulating Danny Selnick for his lifelong achievements in the PR industry, his deep commitment to the public relations profession and practice, his mentoring of generations of young professionals, and his selfless contributions to multiple professional communication organizations and D.C.-area colleges and universities,” said Lauren Lawson-Zilai, 2019 National Capital Public Relations Hall of Fame Chair and PRSA-NCC vice president. “Selnick is a role model due to his enduring impact on his clients and their campaigns and his thoughtful, strategic and generous approach to being a connector to help professionals at all levels amplify their communication efforts and enhance their careers.”
Selnick is a nationally recognized senior communications counselor, who built a successful career at two international commercial news wire services, and is best known for his gift as an industry connector for his willingness to help colleagues and new practitioners, far beyond a business transaction. Throughout his career, he has been dedicated to strategic marketing and communications efforts on behalf of his clients, including associations and nonprofits, advocacy groups, foundations, corporations, and government and political agencies, who focused on public policy and social change issues. He spearheaded marketing and oversaw successful programs, campaigns and projects that reached key audiences and targeted specific media, decision-makers, influencers and the public based on his in-depth knowledge of news gathering and reporting.
