The South Florida Public Relations Network (SFPRN) continues to grow from 200 members in 2006 when it was founded to over 1,700 recipients of the PR Daily Digest in July 2012.

Pete Cento, an experienced, multilingual PR, Marketing, Social Media & Disaster Preparedness consultant based in Naples, FL, was designated as the west coast chapter co-moderator of the PR Daily Digest in January 2011.

Cento has invited PR, Communications, Marketing, Public Affairs & Disaster Preparedness practitioners in Southwest Florida to sign up for the PR DailyDigest and contribute news releases about their clients, best PR practices, job openings and other industry info about the PR industry in Naples, Fort Myers and Cape Coral, FL.

“SFPRN attracts interest because of its unique niche in providing local industry focused news,” said Cento. “What used to be found in the newspaper as weekly columns is no longer available. It was important to founder Linda Hamburger to preserve this type of industry round-up.”

“SFPRN is an umbrella, providing a one-stop-shop and resource of PR jobs boards, groups, resources and news for PR & Marketing pros on both sides of America’s Everglades,” said Cento.

“I try to stay aware of new groups and organizations forming in Southwest Florida,” said Cento. I am currently involved as a member of the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA), Southwest Florida Chapter; The Hispanic Institute at Hodges University; Univision SW Florida; Southwest Florida Hispanic Chamber of Commerce; Telemundo WWDT Fort Myers; Bonita Springs Chamber of Commerce and FGCU Small Business Development Center, Lutgert College of Business.

“I expect that new groups will continue to be created in Southwest Florida as diversity and minority groups continue to gain strength and are appointed to local boards, convention and visitors groups and local chamber of commerce,” added Cento.

Corporate sponsors include Business Wire; O’Dwyer’s, an industry publication; Dine Magazine; and PR News.
