September is PRSA Ethics Awareness Month 
 
 

Ethics Every Day:  Live it, Breathe it, Apply it
 
A panel discussion on ethics and our business practice as we mark 
Ethics Awareness Month with PRSA 
 
Successful communications hinge on the ethics of its practitioners.  
  • Are you doing everything you can to do right in order to do well and avoid missteps?
  • Communications that ignore ethics can lead to missteps that later breed disaster.
  • If you're not the CEO, how can you have a say?
This program is guaranteed to spark in interesting and important conversation!

Why did you join PRSA and what is one of the membership benefits you enjoy the most?
The media landscape is constantly changing, so access to bright minds and thought partners is essential for comms professionals today. I enjoy having the opportunity to connect with others in the field to hear about what's working, what's not working and the innovative approaches being implemented.
