CHICAGO: Ray Gaulke, president and COO of the PRSA for eight years, has been shunted into a diminished role at the association.

In an announcement to the PRSA Assembly at the start of the recent World Congress 2000 in Chicago, PRSA chair and CEO Steve Pizinski said Gaulke will now focus on fund-raising efforts for the PRSA Foundation and KIDS, the youth anti-drug initiative he helped set up two years ago.

The remaining 50% of his salary will be paid by PRSA, where he will work in an undefined advisory capacity. Gaulke, 66, will also 'help' in recruiting a new president and COO, which PRSA officials hope to fill by mid-2001.

The reasons for the shift were not made clear. Pizinski would only say, 'He has been a great innovator, a great marketer.'

Added Gaulke, 'I'm excited to focus on big-picture projects for the society.'

With the recent appointment of PRSA PRO Catherine Bolton, and the Chief Administrative Officer position still unfilled, speculation is that those two roles, defined by last year's Five Year Plan, may be combined.
