New Volunteer Opportunity: Share Your PR Expertise with Nonprofits

Calling all PRSA members with a passion for serving nonprofits! The Hoosier PRSA Public Service Committee is kicking off the new year with a new way to give back: Share your PR expertise to non-profit leaders around the state by leading a breakout session on a communications skill of your choice. (And, earn an APR maintenance credit at the same time!)

The Indiana Nonprofit Resource Network (INRN), a program of Indiana United Way, is partnering with community foundations around the state to educate Hoosier nonprofits about the value of public relations planning. INRN is looking for PR professionals to lead mini-breakout sessions and provide technical assistance at three events in March. Breakout topics may range from PR research and building a campaign, to social media management, evaluation and assessment tools and more.

PRSA Hoosier Chapter member Leslie Galbreath, CEO at Magenta, will give the keynote speech at each event. Galbreath’s keynote will outline the elements of a successful PR and marketing campaign. Following the keynote, breakout sessions are intended to dive into particular campaign elements and provide hands-on experience and valuable takeaways for nonprofits to execute.

Workshop dates:

March 1 – Fort Wayne

March 7 – Lafayette

March 13 – Crawfordsville

Sharing the expertise of PRSA members advances the profession and lends credibility to our organization. Consider volunteering to lead a breakout session. Volunteers can choose their topics and will be reimbursed for mileage. One APR maintenance credit will be offered for each session.
