President’s Corner | September 2017

With the beginning of September, the end of my time as President as PRSA-WV, is quickly approaching. The next three months we have some incredible programming with Ethics Jeopardy in September, Professional Development in October and Emmett Pepper from the West Virginia International Film Festival and Underground Cinema along with the installation of our 2018 officers.

With the end of the year in mind, I want to emphasize the many opportunities we have for members to get involved in PRSA-WV through committee service. Our committees offer a wonderful opportunity to build on skill sets, boost your resume, and network with other public relations and communications professionals.

We will be sending out information to our entire membership this fall detailing the committees and other opportunities to be more involved in PRSA-WV.

Our recent partnership with the American Advertising Federation – West Virginia (AAF-WV) Chapter for the first AAF-WV and PRSA-WV Trivia Night shows what we can accomplish for our membership by partnering with other organizations. The evening event, hosted at Recovery Sports Grill in Charleston, was a unique blend of a social mixer along with the fun of trivia night. Members of both organizations gave positive comments and remarks for the successful event, and we hope this will become an annual event.

Again, thank you for your membership in PRSA-WV.
