This weekend, sadly, PPRA lost a long-time and beloved member of its family, Nessa Forman. Nessa was a PPRA Hall of Famer, but, more important, a mentor, colleague and good friend to so many of us.
After serving as arts and leisure editor of The Bulletin, Nessa began a quarter-century stint as a marketing executive at WHYY Inc. Upon her 2007 retirement from WHYY as vice president of corporate communications and public affairs, Nessa co-founded the multimedia company Worktheshow.com.
Nessa shaped and inspired many practitioners in Philadelphia through her commitment to professional development, her kind disposition, her trademark humor and her true graciousness. She will be missed.
