Give Back: Volunteer for Our Day of Service

Looking for a way to use your PR expertise to give back to the Indianapolis-area community? We’re still looking for some incredible Hoosier PRSA pros to support our “Day of Service: PR for Purpose” event. For the second consecutive year, the Hoosier PRSA Chapter will use this initiative to provide area non-profit organizations with pro-bono public relations counsel.

There’s also something new this year, though – a BIG benefit for volunteers! The Hoosier Chapter is now able to offer PR for Purpose volunteers credit toward their APR annual requirements. APRs who volunteer should record the event in the pro-bono section of their APR Maintenance Application and will earn two points!

And, the commitment is small (but mighty) – we’ll need only three hours of your time on Saturday, Aug. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon. That time will be spent with a few selected non-profits, learning about their organizations and PR needs – as well as advising your match on how to fill those needs or leverage new public relations opportunities. You’ll be matched with a non-profit applicant prior to the event by the Public Service Committee, who will provide you with background information with ample time for review.

This event is free to attend, and a continental-style breakfast will be provided for our volunteers and non-profit attendees.

Head to our Events Page to register or email for more information. We’d like to have our volunteers registered as soon as possible – but no later than July 31.
