Hi everyone! Welcome to your Spring semester at the UI and welcome to PRSSA! Tonight was our first chapter meeting, and there was an awesome turnout!! We covered a lot in a short period of time. It may seem overwhelming at first, but it just goes to show that PRSSA has something for everyone, whether it is Firm Committee, Newsletter, Events Committee, or getting involved in some community service! I hope you’ll all get involved with something, since these are all great ways to get real-world PR experience right within PRSSA and meet new people.
Something for us this semester is the “color” groups (mine is green!), where each exec member heads up a group (identifiable by its color) of members. This is just a way to, A) help everyone get to know each other better, and B) lets members ask questions–about anything–in a more relaxed environment (so you don’t have to ask it in front of 50 other people).
So, get geared up for a great semester and be sure to start marking your calendars for some sweet events:
- THIS FRIDAY!! Jan 29, 4-7 PM, F.W.C. (Friday’s With Class) at Share Wine Lounge & Small Plate Bistro–they are a Firm client and this is the first event of its kind. Bring your friends and kick back with food & drink specials!
- Feb. 10, 7 pm, E120 AJB–Next chapter meeting
- March 27–Polar Plunge–Raises money for Special Olympics
- April 23–Company Tour, Chicago
**More events to come, this is just a sampling of what we’ve got goin’ on!
