Dear Chapter member:

We’ve been regularly posting news and events on our PRSA-WF Facebook page during the year, but we know there may be some of you not on it, so I’d like to send this note to thank you for your membership and to reach out directly.

Some topline things about your chapter:

  • The website,, was redesigned earlier this year, making it cleaner and more mobile responsive. We hope you like it.
  • Speaking of Facebook, we now have 185 members, who are free to post their own news, work referrals and opportunities, relevant events and more, and where we post upcoming events from our chapter, the PRSA Tri-State District, our sister chapter in Connecticut, and relevant industry organizations in our region.
  • We also post chapter events and news to our LinkedIn page and its members are also free to contribute there, so you may wish to consider joining both, if you have not already.
  • We have expanded our Job Bank reach by partnering with the PRSA National Job Center, giving those with openings access to a wider range of candidates and exposure. Listings are promoted on our site, and on PRSA's site and social media. When you’re hiring just visit our Job Bank page for details.
  • Upcoming programs include the Tri-State District conference at NYU on Wednesday, October 16. It’s a great chance to network with regional colleagues and learn. Topics include social movement crisis comms, PR and tech use in social change, using direct tools to drive brands, and gender disparities in PR.
  • We will also have a Solo/Agency Peer Group program - The PR Business is Not What it Was. Are You Up to Speed? – presented by Stacey Cohen of Co-Communications, on Thursday, November 14. Additional programs for the fourth quarter are also in the works, with details to come.
  • The Call for Entries for the 2019 Mercury Awards, hosted by the Greater Connecticut PRSA Chapter, is underway and  the deadline is September 9. Visit their page for instructions and to enter.


And, last but certainly not least, your chapter is a voluntary organization. We’ll be reaching out to you in the coming months regarding program and leadership opportunities. In the meantime, please feel free to get in touch with me. I’d love to talk with you.
