March President’s Message

Hi everyone,

And just like that, it’s March! This month marks one year since the start of the pandemic, working from home for some and social distancing for all. What a year it’s been.

Like most of you, I’m looking forward to warmer temperatures and Spring flowers. On the PRSA Richmond front, we’re off to a strong start and momentum is really starting to pick up as it relates to Chapter activity and excitement.

This month, we’ll host a workshop titled “Radically Relevant” focused on creating compelling content. Our speaker is Tim Asimos with circle S studio where he is the Director of Digital Growth & Growth. The hands-on workshop will share tips and strategies for content to reach your digital goals, whether it’s awareness, customers, etc. Click here to register.

Our March program will be held on the 31st. More information is coming soon, but you can expect voices from women in PR to celebrate Women’s History Month.

Fast forward to April 1, and the call for entries for the 2021 Virginia PR Awards will be live! Start gathering materials now to share the success of some of your great work from the past year.

As always, I’m here to connect anytime. Please reach out to anytime – we can talk shop or life. I prefer a healthy mix of both!

Take care, stay well and see you soon!

Get Involved: Join the Professional Development Committee Today!

A great way to get a feel for leadership within PRSA Richmond is to join a committee. And right now, the professional development committee, led by Kenita Matthews, APR, is looking for a few members to volunteer.

This commitment includes a few hours per month brainstorming topics and booking speakers. As we shared earlier in the year, the board voted to significantly increase the budget for our speakers in order to bring members exceptional value in 2021. We’re focused on finding dynamic speakers to address exciting topics and trends our members want.

If you’re interested in joining the committee, have a topic to recommend or know someone who would be an engaging speaker, please reach out to Kenita at
