The Greater Kansas City PRSA chapter is seeking a Vice President of PRISM to serve on this year’s Board of Directors. The chapter is also inquiring for individuals to serve on the PRISM Gala committee and/or an experienced event planner who can provide expertise and insight into its implementation.
The PRISM Gala is GKC-PRSA’s ultimate opportunity to celebrate member achievement, the Kansas City area’s only awards competition, and a premier event for the public relations industry in the area. This signature event is of the highest importance to the chapter, not only as an amazing networking and recognition experience, but as a revenue source to support the programming in which we benefit from all year long.
Without these vital, volunteer positions filled, this program faces an uncertain future. Without leadership for planning the gala, creative solutions and tough decisions will have to be considered to execute an alternative event and secure necessary chapter funds.
Those that volunteer their time toward PRISM 2018 will join an existing team that has already begun planning for the judging and call-for-entries side of the program. They would not only serve the chapter membership in a big way, but also get an opportunity to exercise and display leadership skills, build a professional resume, network for their current organization or their next job, and have an outlet for creative ideas. The chair and committee members are recognized at the event during the ceremony and throughout the program.
As a plea to chapter membership, please consider volunteering your time and organization’s support to help us continue to provide a first-class event. If you would like to volunteer on the committee, provide in-kind skills, or provide leadership and expertise for this event, please contact chapter president Norita Taylor, APR, at
