What do pie charts have to do with PR? Plenty. Our talented, and very organized, Membership Services committee lead, Meredith Amoroso, even made one to show membership diversity. She exclaimed, “I made a pie chart” during her report at our monthly board meeting Tuesday, March 21, 2017. She also shared a few recent survey results that will help us to plan better events for the Pittsburgh PR community.
Steve Radick, our president, gave an update on our 2017 Strategic Plans/Goals. In January, every board member submitted goals for the year, and Steve is helping us to stay on track with this ambitious undertaking.
Our programming calendar is already well underway, with an IABC/PRSA Pittsburgh Content Marketing Discussion coming up March 30, 2017, and a Communicator Tour at The Motherhood April 4, 2017. We also heard updates from our Renaissance Awards committee and PD Day committee (already!).
Our Communications committee is working hard on the March PRSA Pittsburgh Newsletter. Look for it in your mailboxes this week. We’re also continually adding to and improving our new website and social media presence.
Katie Carr, our Public Service committee lead, collaborated with the Programming committee to support our public service partner, Glimmer of Hope, in some upcoming events.
Accreditation, Diversity and Ethics committees are all completing outreach to determine how we can best support our members in these areas.
Everyone left with specific action items to complete during the month of April. We’ll meet again April 25 to continue discussions on summer events, speakers, membership benefits and more.
Do you have a question or idea for our board? Let us know before the next meeting. You can email Samantha McClintock, with ideas, concerns and questions to be discussed at the April meeting.
