Booked up? Squeeze in a little face-time with PRSA Spokane
How booked is your schedule? In recent outreach to many members of the Spokane Chapter of PRSA, it seems that everyone is overloaded. Meetings and conferences and marketing and public relations tactics have us grasping for more time.
These elements, it seems, have changed the way that we do business - and the way that we participate in industry organizations. As a board we are learning that some members prefer to earn online certifications, go through hands-on exercises, or get the most bang-for-their-buck at Society meetings by meeting top broadcasters.
With everyone spread thin, it is becoming more difficult to hold well-attended educational sessions. Plus, with the amazing and wonderful advent of webinars, we can snack on a sandwich at lunch as learn more about "Crafting the Perfect Pitch," or "Incorporating Digital Strategies for PR Success," for free through our PRSA membership.
This innovation is great, but still, aren't our in-person interactions still important? The chance to meet in person and make connections is fundamental to the industry. Please join me in continuing the tradition of clearing a place in your calendar for local PRSA events, while also embracing our time-saving online technologies.
