Advancing the Profession and the Professional

Meetings

Monthly meetings provide the opportunity for interaction and education for PRSA-WV Chapter members and guests. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, generally for a breakfast or luncheon. Our monthly meetings feature local and regional speakers who can bring new perspective to our members, while providing time for networking and exchanging ideas and information.

Reservations are required for these meetings, so please contact we.are.pr@prsawv.org or view our calendar to make your reservation for our next meeting.

Professional development is critical to today's public relations professionals. It provides a mechanism for personal and professional growth by enhancing current job skills and developing new ones. For those who earn the APR designation, it is also mandatory for maintenance of accreditation. In today's business environment, where both time and dollars for education are often scarce, the two half-day professional development seminars provided by PRSA-WV Chapter are a major benefit to chapter members and other professionals in our state. As part of our annual calendar, we feature two outstanding seminars, one in the summer and one in the fall

To be included on our mailing list for these seminars, please e-mail we.are.pr@prsawv.org

Upcoming Meeting Schedule

Understanding PR’s impact on tourism

On May 1, Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin announced the appointment of Amy Shuler Goodwin to the position of Deputy Secretary of Commerce and Commissioner of Tourism. On July 16, she will be the featured speaker for our luncheon meeting at the Marriott Town Center Hotel.

"I’m honored and extremely happy to have the opportunity to show the world what we know to be true about the Mountain State — it is and always will be the best place to visit, grow a business and raise a family," Goodwin said.

Goodwin first served in the governor’s office as then-Gov. Bob Wise’s chief spokesperson. During her 19-year career, she has served as the state director for a presidential campaign, as the managing member of a public relations firm working on behalf of health care organizations, trade and issue associations, not for profit organizations, universities, Fortune 500 companies, labor unions and small businesses and as a television news anchor and reporter for two stations in West Virginia.

Hear her impressions, challenges and plans as she takes on her new role in the world of tourism and how her public relations expertise will impact her work in this new position.

Join us on July 16 in the Gauley Room at the Marriott Town Center Hotel for this noon luncheon meeting. Please park in the Town Center Mall facility (for $1.75). The 2014 board of directors and committee chairs will meet at 10:30 a.m. Please make your reservations at prsawv.org by Friday, July 11. Cancellations will be billed. The cost is $20 students and members, $22 guests.
