JOE CURLEY HONORED FOR STATEWIDE SERVICE IN THE FIELD OF PUBLIC RELATIONS

 ORLANDO, Fla., Aug. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Joseph J. Curley, president and co-founder of Orlando-based Curley & Pynn Public Relations Management, Inc., was bestowed the highest statewide honor awarded by the Florida Public Relations Association (FPRA) as recipient of the 1993 John W. Dillin professional award.
 Curley is the first Orlando professional to receive the lifetime achievement award since its inception in 1987. The award is named after John Dillin, who founded FPRA in 1938. Each year the honor is bestowed upon the public relations practitioner which best exemplifies high ethical standards and outstanding professional leadership.
 "This man is considered 'The Dean of Public Relations in Central Florida' and a model for public relations professionals everywhere," said Donna Davis, immediate past state president of FPRA, during the award ceremony.
 Curley has practiced public relations in Florida for more than two decades and was previously honored by his peers through their selection as 46th state president of FPRA. He was also recognized in 1984 as Outstanding Public Relations Professional of the Year by the association's Orlando Area Chapter.
 In the early 1980s, Curley was manager of public relations for the 12,000-employee Orlando Aerospace operations of Martin Marietta Corporation. Previously, he was associated with Florida Cypress Gardens as publicity manager where he distinguished himself by achieving unprecedented national media attention for the attraction.
 Professionally accredited by both PRSA and FPRA, he served as national chairman for PRSA's Professional Development Review Task Force and is a highly requested speaker throughout the country for seminars on the topics of media relations and creativity.
 His firm, Curley & Pynn Public Relations Management, Inc., in downtown Orlando, represents national clients in the areas of hospitality, attractions, telecommunications and manufacturing.
