Fall Semester Meeting Updates
Due to covid-19, we unfortunately won’t be able to meet in person for this semester. That being said we will still meet every Wednesday at 7 pm over zoom and we will try to make the meetings feel as normal as possible with workshops and guest speakers!
If you would like to be a dues paying member for the calendar year, you have up until October 14 to venmo, the newly reduced price of $66.25 to @PRSSA-ISU, which you can find the link to under our social media links. If you have already paid, you will be refunded for the difference! Also be sure to join our membership list by going to Redbird Life which can also be found under the social media links!
PRSSA REIMAGINED Panel Event
Grand Valley State University is inviting our chapter to attend PRSSA REIMAGINED’s panel-style events this Fall 2020 semester. The first event will be Thursday, September 10th at 7 pm EST. The topic is “Relationship Building Between Journalists and PR Pros” featuring guest speakers Nina Smith (former National Traveling Press Secretary to Mayor Pete), Marvis Herring (Weekend Anchor and Reporter from Louisville) and Bryce Huffman (Reporter and Producer fro Bridge Magazine in Detroit). The deadline for registration is Wednesday, September 9th at 11:59 pm
This year you have the opportunity to either mentor another member, or be the mentee to another member! This will allow you to make more connections and broaden your knowledge of the PR world and how PRSSA is operated!
