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 firstname.lastname@example.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 email@example.com

2016 Day of Caring
In lieu of a traditional meeting, PRSA-West Virginia will be participating in the United Way Day of Caring in the Charleston area. The Day of Caring is about mobilizing the caring power of people in our community.
Give an hour. Give a Wednesday. Give your best. We all have special talents. When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. Whether it’s washing windows, painting, fence repair or green space clean up in our community, there are hundreds of volunteer options available every day.
WHAT IS DAY OF CARING?
United Way Day of Caring is a celebration of community volunteers giving one day to help one another. Volunteers provide helping hands to non-profit agencies that need assistance across Kanawha, Putnam, Boone and Logan Counties. Volunteers make a real difference by tackling agency projects such as painting, landscaping, or light maintenance that might not otherwise get done.
HOW CAN I HELP?
Volunteers are needed to complete requested projects. Recruit family members, friends, neighbors and coworkers to form a team. Teams can range in size from 2 to over 10. Some of the projects that will need adopted are:
• Spruce up a non-profit site by landscaping and applying mulch.
• Receive, sort, hang, bale and display donations at a thrift store.
• Paint, mow grass, trim shrubs, landscape at a women’s recovery
• Make minor repairs to an afterschool program; painting, cleaning
• Prepare a mailing – fold letters, label and stuff envelopes – for a
Christmas food drive.
• And many more!
HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?
All information regarding Day of Caring is posted on our website – www.unitedwaycwv.org. To participate as part of the PRSA-West Virginia Chapter team, just register for this meeting as you would for any other chapter meeting. Our team captain, Jordan Pence, will follow up with additional information.
