National Committee Updates

Run for National Committee
National President Andrew Cook
Are you interested in running for National Committee for the upcoming school year? If so, now is the time to make your plans and register to attend the PRSSA 2018 National Assembly in Miami. Be sure to read the PRSSA Situation Analysis  and decide which position you will run for. Also, set up a time to speak with the National Committee member that currently holds the position you are interested in.

Sharpen Your Writing Skills Over Winter Break
Publications Editor in Chief Natalie Gloady
The holiday season is here, and that means time to relax, spend time with family and enjoy having no homework over winter break. But don’t let your writing skills fall behind. The winter months are a great time to get ahead by writing articles for Progressions. These nationally published pieces will be great additions to your portfolio and resume when applying for internships and jobs. Submit your articles to Natalie Gloady at natgloady@gmail.com.

Finding Your Path
Vice President of Career Services Demi Wolfe
As you look for your next internship, use the Career Resources Manual as your guide and utilize the Internship Center for your search. Learn how to write a strong resume and cover letter to make your application stand out.
