National Committee Updates

Regional Conference Season is Here
Vice President of Events and Fundraising Bryar Keyes
This month we will start our first three Regional Conferences of the year with Boise State, Texas State and Boston University. Each Chapter should fundraise to help fund trips to these Regional Conferences. For more information email Bryar Keyes at Bryar703@live.missouristate.edu.

Thank You for a Successful Career Development Month
Vice President of Career Services Demi Wolfe
Career Development Month is over, but the internship search continues. Through the Career Resources Manual, Champions for PRSSA and the PRSSA Internship Center, you have member benefits that will help you prepare and secure exciting opportunities for this summer. Send any career development-related questions to Demi Wolfe at dwolfe.prssa@gmail.com.

Start the Year on the Right Foot 
National President Andrew Cook
As 2018 kicks off there are plenty of ways for Chapters to engage on the national level with PRSSA. First, be sure to help your Chapter’s delegate prepare to the PRSSA National Assembly in Miami, Florida. Next, collaborate with a nearby PRSSA Chapter to hold a Chapter event with a school near you. Finally, visit the fundraising ideas page to begin saving money for the PRSSA National Conference in Austin this October. 2018 is going to be another great year and I can’t wait to see what we as a Society can accomplish.
