The NASO RK election meeting was held recently in Almaty, Kazakshtan. The new Chairman of the Board became Mrs. Asel Karaulova, the President of the Kazakhstan Press Club, the Managing partner of PG Communications consulting agency, a member of IPRA (International Public Relations Association). Prior to that, for many years the NASO Board was led by Svetlana Krutskikh, the Managing partner of “Renaissance” Group of companies.
” The eight consequent years as the Chairlady of the NASO Board was a serious contribution to the development of our local PR-market. Together with all the founders, our “NASO team” made big things. We have entered into the International Communications Consultancy Organization (ICCO), and became the thirty National PR-Associations from around the world, we successfully started Ak Mergen, a National Award for Public Relations practitioners, attracting every year more and more efficient PR-projects. Also NASO supported and contributed in the organization of 12 PR conferences, and held over 50 workshops and master classes during all those years” – said Svetlana Krutskikh.
Asel Karaulova, Chairman of the Board of NASO RK says: “I would like to express my gratitude to Svetlana Krutskikh for her invaluable contribution to the development of the PR industry in Kazakhstan. Today NASO is entering a new stage of its development. With the entry into ICCO, Kazakhstan will appear on the map of international PR-research and global reports. There is a quantitative growth of the Association, because the new agencies enter NASO slowly but surely. We launch a project for expert assessment of the market, new workshops and industry events, along with the already well-known forums and contests. My focus, as the new Chairman of the Board, will be on the professionalization of the Kazakhstan PR-market and its integration with the international one.”
