Date:11/6/2008

Laura Kane Honored at National Press Club

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Aflac spokeswoman and vice-president of external communications, Laura Kane, was inducted into the PR News Public Relations Hall of Fame at the PR People Awards today. Ms. Kane and four others were honored during an awards luncheon among colleagues, family and friends at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

Nominees were judged on specific criteria including professional public relations achievements over their careers, specific campaigns, leadership qualities, innovative thinking, sound judgment, flexibility, and volunteer efforts and other contributions to public relations advocacy. In November PR News will publish an "All-Stars Issue" that will profile the top public relations people of 2008, in which they will salute the class of 2008 Hall of Fame honorees -- a lifetime achievement award for pioneers in the field.

"A Hall of Fame public relations expert is intuitive, has a confident voice, is media savvy, and produces results," Aflac chairman and CEO Dan Amos said. "Many successful campaigns at Aflac demonstrate that Laura has all of these qualities and more. We are very proud of this recognition which she so richly deserves."

Aflac Executive Vice President and Chief Administrative Officer Teresa White said, "We have come to rely on Laura's instincts and expertise in handling our crucial public and media relations challenges. This honor among her peers validates what we at Aflac already know; Laura Kane is a strong woman worthy of the Hall of Fame."

Ms. Kane was also a finalist in the category of Corporate PR Person of the Year for her work in 2007, including communications related to Aflac's historic Say-on-Pay campaign. Her media relations work resulted in positive articles in national publications like Newsweek, front-page stories in the USA Today and the Wall Street Journal, as well as frequent appearances by Aflac executives on network and national cable news programs.
