On Tuesday, April 25, our PRSA Pittsburgh Board met for a monthly meeting. We provided updates on our 2017 strategic plans and our President gave a short presentation on leadership succession, which doesn’t sound that exciting but it was! As we continue to flesh out the leadership succession plan and vote it into action, we’ll have a clearer idea of how board members come into being and how they can become executive members, president-elect, president and immediate past president, should they choose.
We also discussed the results from our latest PRSA Membership survey. Some of you may have provided your input on how we can improve our Chapter. We’re continuing to review the survey results and will make tweaks to our communications, programming and membership benefits as needed.
We voted to approve Robert Morris University’s PRSSA Chapter. Congratulations, RMU! We also discussed how we can provide additional support and resources to our local PRSSA chapters, as well as how they might support the needs of PRSA Pittsburgh through volunteering.
After much conversation about public service, diversity, sponsorship and senior practitioner updates, we also reviewed our upcoming events. Next month, we’re teaming up with IABC to host a comedy event. In July, we’ll host our Women in Business event. We’re also working on a headshot happy hour, where we’ll provide professional headshots for a small fee and donation.
Also coming up is the annual game night with Ad2 Pittsburgh, a membership happy hour, Professional Development Day and the Renaissance Awards. We’re still finalizing dates for many of our events. Visit our Events page for more details and follow us on Twitter and Facebook for updates!
