Chapter PRSA
We can develop real relationships if we spend time together

If you are a member of PRSA, then I know something about you.

You are likely working in communications, public relations, marketing, or social media. You may enjoy being social, creative, and engaged with others.

You could be fairly new in your career, and perhaps came out of membership with PRSSA. Or, you might be more seasoned like me, with many years of business experience behind you.

One thing is for sure, we are all a part of a bigger community. We can come together to share career tips, insights, and challenges.

At the end of the day, as members of PRSA, let's be a support network in the greater Spokane region. Please join me for coffee or cocktails this month, and let's get to know each other.
