In December, I was named President-Elect for the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) Southeastern Wisconsin Chapter. Our chapter of 300+ members is the largest group of PR professionals in the state of Wisconsin. As President-Elect, I am in charge of our monthly programming. Here is a link to our website page with all of the currently planned programs described: http://www.prsawis.org/events/chapter-events/ .
As board member for PRSA Southeastern Wisconsin, I am also in charge of planning our PRO Day, a 1/2 day event for college students learn more about careers in Public Relations . The 2015 PRO Day will be held at Marquette University’s Student Union on Friday, April 17 and is being generously sponored by Eisner Creative Foundation and Big Shoes Network. To learn more about this event please visit http://www.prsawis.org/students/pro-day/ .
I am truly humbled to be serving as President-Elect for this great chapter. In 1992, I served as the Midwest District Director for the Public Relations Student Society of America when I was a senior at UW-Whitewater. To say this has been an amazing journey to come to this point in my career is an understatement. I can honestly say over the years, PRSSA and now PRSA have both dramatically impacted my life both professionally and personally, and I’m so grateful for the many wonderful friendships I have because of these two wonderful professional organizations.
