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 email@example.com 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

Rebuilding trust: How can we do it here?
When the majority of 300,000 water customers believe their water is unsafe, how do you regain public trust? What kind of best practice strategies will be effective as all of us deal with the consequences to assure the public that our water is "safe" or will be again. Scott Carlberg, president of E4 Carolinas, an energy-based economic development organization in Charlotte, NC, will be our speaker at the March 19 chapter meeting. Drawing on his experience, the corporate affairs professional will discuss good strategies to deal with a crisis in public confidence.
Please come at least 15 minutes earlier to network, at 11:45 a.m., so we can start on time at noon, and allow ample time for remarks and Q&A.
Carlberg has worked with the energy industry for 29 years in large multi-national firms, including Duke Energy, and with varied energy interests in his own public affairs business practice for eight years. He has led multiple corporate departmental turnarounds, and now leads the multi-state energy trade association (E4 Carolinas). Carlberg has extensive experience with strategic corporate relations functions, with emphasis on corporate communications, corporate citizenship, social responsibility and public affairs.
