Truly, It Couldn't Happen To A Nicer Guy!

Philadelphia Public Relations Hall of Fame Member, Mark A. Tarasiewicz who serves as Executive Director of the 12,000-member Philadelphia Bar Association, is this year's recipient of the prestigious Arthur J. Birdsall Award presented by the Pennsylvania Bar Association. The award is the highest honor bestowed upon a Pennsylvania bar executive and recognizes faithful stewardship, commitment to the association's success, and enhancement of its stature.
A Philly native, Mark is a graduate of Temple University and a past president of the Philadelphia Public Relations Association. Mark is an accomplished executive and a nationally-recognized PR practitioner who has shared his expertise with students as an adjunct professor at Temple's School of Communications.
He is a three-time recipient of the National Association of Bar Executives (NABE) Luminary Award, as well as the Philadelphia Public Relations Association Fast Track Award. He's also an adjunct professor in the Temple University graduate program in Strategic Communication. He has lectured for the National Association of Bar Executives, American Society of Association Executives, Public Relations Society of America, Penn State University, Villanova University and the University of the Arts.
As the Executive Director of the nation's oldest chartered bar association for the past three years, Mark has brought the Philadelphia Bar Association into a new era of public and professional service, applying his many skills and insights to make the association relevant to new generations of lawyers and an increasingly diverse community.
But here's the important part: Mark is one of the nicest people we know. He's caring, helpful, friendly, funny, thorough, bright,  extraordinarily patient, incredibly hard-working and admirably meticulous. When Mark zeroes in on a mission, you can be sure it will be accomplished.
Once in a great while nice things really do happen to nice, eminently worthy people.
This is one of those moments. This is one of those people.
Congratulations, Mark!
