November President’s Message

Happy fall colleagues,

We are a month away from the end of the 2022 PRSA Richmond season – and we have had a full year thanks to the committed communications community in Richmond and the commonwealth.

There are still opportunities to build community in the upcoming month:

  • Independent & Senior Practitioner Mix + Mingle at Ardent on November 10, 6:00 PM, learn more and register here.
  • New Member Network and Connect Thursday, Nov. 17 from 12 to 1 p.m. Learn more and register here.
  • November Luncheon – due to the Thanksgiving holiday, the meeting will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 29, and online registration will close on Wednesday, Nov. 23, so please be sure to register early as soon as you get the newsletter next week. The November luncheon is a special one because we will be honoring scholarship winners and past presidents. We will also be installing new officers. Our speakers will be Jeff Wilson and Julie McCracken from Padilla who will be presenting on “The Power of Purpose: Why Social Impact Communications Matter Now More Than Ever.” Learn more and register here.

This month also marks my last month as president of the PRSA Richmond chapter. I am grateful for a year that brought the return to in person luncheons at a new location, a great awards season, meaningful work in the DE&I space, valuable learning opportunities in person and virtually, and new members who have joined with excitement and anticipation. I am thrilled to have been part of it.

A special thank you goes out to the chapter’s board – these folks are volunteers, and they dedicate time and effort monthly to ensure that we continue to focus on the value that we provide for our members. Thank you to all and it has been an honor to serve alongside you.

Thank you for a great year as your PRSA Richmond president.

See you at the November luncheon to celebrate!
