Wow! It’s hard to believe that summer is here, although it’s a bit early but that’s KC weather for you. For us at GKC-PRSA, that means work for the annual PRISM Awards Gala is underway. You’ve probably seen the call for entries to submit your best PR work but in case you haven’t, you can submit your work  here  but be sure to complete it soon. The deadline is fast approaching! Speaking of the PRISM event, maybe you don’t have work to submit but are still looking for a way your organization can support GKC-PRSA. The call for sponsorships is also open and your support helps the chapter provide programming all year long. Please contact  Norita Taylor, APR, president , to discuss sponsorship opportunities.
Other things our team have been working on include upcoming professional development opportunities. For our solo PR friends, join us for an  upcoming luncheon  and have you ever wondered what the best practices of sharing content are? Well if you answered yes, we’ve got you covered. Check out our  June luncheon, Lessons in Shareable Content . We can’t wait to see you at an upcoming event.
One final thought, as a PR professional, giving back to the profession and the industry is something I find to be very important. As such, serving on the board of our local chapter was an easy choice; however, we need more folks to step forward and give back to the profession and help guide the chapter. It’s important we have a solid board and your skill sets can be used in any number of roles we have open. Feel free to contact me to answer your questions about board service.
