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!
Internship: Illinois Farm Bureau summer internship https://www.ilfb.org/careers/current-job-openings/
ICON 2020 International Conference
ICON will be running from October 26-29, and is a great chance to hear keynote speakers, PRSSA champions, learn about career development opportunities, network with other PR professionals, learn about diversity and inclusion breakout and many more! This event will only be available to dues paying members, and was originally $160 to attend, but this year we will be funding you! If you are interested in attending, email Sarah Lisewski at email@example.com!
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 information. Also be sure to join our membership list by going to Redbird Life which can also be found under the social media links!
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! If you are interested in this opportunity, please take the quick survey below, so we can make the best fit!
