MESSAGE FROM the PRSA-SF President
We close our chapter year for 2015 very soon and I would like to share a huge THANK YOU with each and every member of the Public Relations Society of America-San Francisco for a very productive year.
A huge thank you, in particular, to Marit Fox, our chapter administrator who guided us to ever more professional chapter operations. She is our professional anchor and her work has made our work so much easier and better in 2015.
Also, a tremendous thank you to board CFO, Kate Farrell Bair. She worked closely and tirelessly with Marit and other board members to clarify finance and budget records and plans. She has created a solid, clear and useful draft budget which will go to the 2016 board for final touches and approval.
And thank you to all of YOUR board members and fellow chapter members who worked hard to provide a strong program for all of us in every dimension through 2015.
In the area of notable strengths, we continued the phenomenally popular and important Second Thursday series -
place in the entire Bay Area to meet up for PR networking - in both San Francisco and Oakland.
And the board reached out to connect with the new chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America at California State University-East Bay. This is a particularly important moment and opportunity, as this is the very first PRSSA chapter established in our chapter's service area.
Most important, we leave 2015 with the chapter in a good place and state, and we can and should all look forward to an even better, stronger program in 2016 under the leadership of incoming president Y'Anad Burrell, working in concert with president-elect Annie Moore. Hope you all have a great holiday - with time off to relax and recharge - and look forward to seeing you all in the New Year!
Michele M. Horaney APR
