It’s that time of year, and a new E-board has been elected for EMU PRSSA. As the new Vice President of Professional Development and Special Events and Programming, I decided that I wanted to set out my goals for the new year, and provide an opportunity to hear the opinions of our entire chapter.

My goal for the 2017-2018 school year are to provide new experiences to our members to help them with networking, and learning more about public relations in every aspect. PR is a large field, and there are so many different options you can choose from. Often times, we go on Agency tours that focus on the same thing. We don’t always get the chance to experience what the corporate, nonprofit, entertainment and sports aspects of PR are like. Even those options don’t cover the entire PR spectrum. My goal as VP of Professional Development is to provide as many experiences and networking opportunities for those types of PR as possible. I want to include every part of PR that our members are interested in.

In talking with past and present members, corporate, entertainment and sports PR seem to be  topics many people are interested in. My plan is to start there, and learn more about what our future members want to see as well.

As your e-board member, my responsibility is to provide you with the best opportunities I can. I promise I will try my best to provide an opportunity for every one of our members to build their networks for after graduation and learn more about something he/she is interested in.

Please comment below or tweet me @hsalyer01 with any ideas or suggestions you have for the kinds of experiences you would like me to try to facilitate. I’m excited to see everything the new school year is going to bring, and I look forward to working with each and every one of you!
