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
To be included on our mailing list for these seminars, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Do you play well with others? The power of ethics
Come ready to play and learn at the September 17 chapter meeting, as well as demonstrate your knowledge of the PRSA Code of Ethics. How? Attendees will participate in a competition to win the chapter’s first Team Ethics award. The table with the highest score wins. The award is designed to create more awareness of ethics in daily practice and to serve as a symbol to employers that the member is receiving valuable coaching in ethics – plus, it gives you the opportunity to discuss with your employer how PRSA enhances the profession and the professional. This is a win-win for everyone.
Before every competition, players must prepare. You are asked to do two things before the meeting:
1) Download the PRSA ethics app to their smartphones. It is a free app available through Apple and Goggle Android.
2) Go to the PRSA site and take the 10-question Ethics Test (EQ -- PRSA Ethics Quotient Quiz), and bring your scores to add to the table’s total. During lunch, table teammates will discuss this quiz and create a summary. Prior to lunch, the ethics coaches – Cathryn Gibbs Harris, APR, Fellow PRSA, and Joe Long, APR, will relay the guidelines for the summary and the scoring.
"Joe and I urge all members to attend and bring potential members," said Harris. "We know all of you have tremendous energy and love to compete. Join us for this extremely important topic and some fun. Please bring or wear the ball cap of your favorite baseball team. We promise no time-outs or strikes."
