June President’s Message

Taya M. JarmanWith “childhood – waiting to jump in the pool” excitement, I am looking forward to summer. Before the end of the season bell rings, here are a few announcements and events to note.

And the Winner Is…
We will host the 76th Virginia PR Awards at the exhilarating Dominion Energy Center on Wednesday, June 7, at 5:30 p.m.!

Every year, I’m excited to celebrate my peers as they are recognized for their hard work and ingenuity. For our industry, these awards are our PRprom, Grammys, Emmys, and Oscars rolled into one.

Picture this: 200+ of your closest colleagues on stage, ceiling lights twinkling, and your friends are roaring with excitement from hearing their campaigns win. Trust me. You don’t want to miss it.

We all Scream for Ice Cream: Just before you turn on your “out of office” message, please join us for a fun season-closing luncheon on June 29th.

Summer Reading: Over the next few months, I challenge you to take one professional development course or program. As a PRSA member, there are several webinars, workshops, and on-demand sessions to keep you sharp.

That’s it. I hope you take some time off to relax and recharge for our next season. Enjoy your break.

With bated breath + sunscreen,
Taya M. Jarman, APR
