Congratulations to Cortney Ceccato and Chelsea King for being elected as the new President and Vice-President of Pacific’s PRSSA Chapter! This is going to be a great year ahead and we’re all excited to welcome in our new executive Board, including Kinsey Eaton (Secretary) and Katelyn Albrecht (Treasurer).
I encourage all students interested in careers in communication generally, and public relations especially, to join Pacific’s PRSSA chapter. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the field and network with other students and professionals also interested in public relations.
We are beginning our strategic planning for this year, which includes identifying our fundraising goals and program events. As a chapter with many new members it’s a great time to get involved and help steer the future direction of Pacific’s Chapter. Our meetings are on Thursdays at 12’noon in the conference room in the Communication Building — everyone is welcome!
Another thing we’re excited about is that the PRSSA National Conference will be held in San Francisco this year. You can check out the program here. This is a wonderful event, loaded with opportunities to meet public relations students and professionals from across the country, as well as attend presentations from top leaders in the field. I highly encourage everyone to attend. The conference runs from from Friday, October 12 to Tuesday, October 16.
