The Hoosier Chapter’s PRSSA committee assists accredited Indiana PRSSA chapters by providing access to professional development opportunities, and helping to develop highly qualified, well-prepared professionals. Take advantage of what the committee has to offer:
Update your chapter’s leadership contacts
To communicate effectively with your chapter, we ask for updated officer and advisor contact information each year after chapter elections. Send us an email with your chapter’s updated contact information by May 1, 2017.
Request chapter aid
Each chapter is entitled to file for one $100 aid request per academic school year. Chapters may use the aid for any PRSSA sanctioned purpose. Aid for the 2016 – 2017 school year is currently closed. Please check back for more information regarding 2017 – 2018 chapter aid.
Invite an industry professional to speak to your chapter
The Hoosier Chapter has more than 350 active professional members with varying backgrounds and expertise. Interested in learning from a PR pro at an upcoming chapter event? Contact us and we will help set it up.
Attend a PRSA luncheon or professional development event
Discounted student rates are offered at most PRSA Hoosier professional development events, including luncheons, which take place every other month. Click here to register for upcoming events for your chance to network with industry professionals.
