March President’s Message: Here to Help

Over the years, PRSA Richmond has had the heart and desire to help nonprofit organizations. Through workshops, professional development sessions and pro bono work on specific events . . . we’ve led different efforts to lend public relations expertise to small nonprofits.

In this Year of Yes for PRSARVA, both the Nonprofit Committee, chaired by Rakeem Mosey, and the Service Project, chaired by Abby Nurnberger, bring all kinds of new energy to nonprofit public relations.

Throughout the month of March, the application is open for PRSA Richmond’s Service Project. The nonprofit organization selected will receive hands-on, integrated PR assistance from our volunteer team on a specific project or event, including one of the following areas:

  • Strategic planning: Crafting or defining an overall communications strategy
  • Event management: Assistance with a special event
  • Tactics: Assistance with tactics such as social media, media relations or internal communications

If you know of a nonprofit organization that could benefit from this expert (and enthusiastic!) boost, please apply here. If you would like to be a part of the Service Project team, contact Abby at

On March 18, the Nonprofit Committee will bring its own professional boost to smaller organizations and any other working PR pro’s who need it at Headshots at Happy Hour. Join us at Bar Solita on Broad Street in downtown Richmond to freshen up the image you’re putting out there. Building relationships and optimizing a professional presence are additional ways we can welcome nonprofits, start-ups and non-traditional organizations into our ranks.

PRSA Richmond is committed to sharing knowledge and serving the community. We’re here for it.
