Public relations is vital no matter what organization you’re in.
It creates a shield for the organization in times of crisis. It also serves as a reminder of your mission.
Taking advantage of the perks offered by PRSSA has been one of the best investments in my life because it offers me the networking opportunities I desire. When I go to a meeting like the one I attended on Oct. 15, those benefits come to life.
During the Oct. 15 meeting, we played a Family Feud like game – there was a theme of being aware of the history and benefits of public relations. The information that has been made for members of PRSSA is immense.
The fact that we have become an entity of a bigger network is extremely important for our future careers. There are advisors, long-term members and tons of electronic means to receive advice as we advance through college and enter the real world.
The game was fun, but the long standing tradition stands out as PRSSA’s best quality. This quality equates to a formula that simply works when it comes to maintaining professionalism, audience interest and ethics through some tough decisions. Going to the meetings, being attentive and networking works because it’s effort that is being put in by members who receive it back.
