    PRSA Nebraska Monthly Newsletter: March 2019 Print

    A Note from the President

    The challenges of our profession occur daily within environments of constant change. And, not all PRSA chapters are the same. Therefore, anytime we can connect with peers in our own industries, an opportunity might emerge. 

    At the national leadership rally in October, I was reminded of one of the benefits of PRSA: Section Membership. There are 14 professional interest groups, known as Sections. These groups share important and relevant information about specific areas of interest through a variety of channels throughout the year. This could be an outstanding resource for you.

    PRSA Nebraska leadership continues to look for ways to enhance your membership. We're still in the process of examining recent survey results and will complete our strategic planning in March. We've got some exciting programming coming up and invite you to attend. Watch for the save the date postcard that will be coming to you listing upcoming events!

    Calendar of Events

    Tuesday March 26, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

    Outrspaces, 1358 S. 13th St.

    If you want to change the world, start in your own backyard. High school friends Mike Smith and Andrew Norman have built significant followings from scratch by sharing their passions of skateboarding, music and art — and empowering young people to use their passions to create their own revolutions. Now as partners in Rabble Mill (a non-profit organization that brought Hear Nebraska, The Bay and Skate for Change together), they are creating more skilled, supported, connected communities through education, outreach and storytelling across subcultures. Both Mike and Andrew are in-demand speakers and they'll be sharing the stage together for the first time ever at this PRSA Nebraska lunch! Come learn how their innovative, digitally-based platforms are igniting a fire within youth across the globe. All attendees will also receive a free copy of their book, Legacy vs. Likes.
