As we move into spring and come off the heels of our chapter’s two major events, I wanted to take a moment to recap the values and beliefs your board has been following to guide the Ocala Chapter throughout the 2018-2019 year:
- Positive Attitude
Another important idea that leads to the success of our chapter is the notion of effective communication. Ultimately, communication is one of the most important skills in life, especially in our industry. Here are a few things to keep in mind about communication:
- Communication is a skill that can be enhanced. Did you know there are monthly webinars available to members of FPRA, some of which focus on communication skills? Visit https://www.fpra.org/webinar-codesarchive/ to browse through the archives. These webinars are free to FPRA members.
- Annual conference is a great opportunity to not only learn the latest and greatest PR communication ideas, but also to learn about what FPRA is doing for members. Learn more about conference by visiting https://www.fpra.org/professional-development/annual-conference-details/. The Ocala chapter has also allocated funds for conference scholarships. Apply for a conference scholarship by visiting http://www.fpraocala.org/scholarship-application/.
Like anything else in life, your membership is what you make of it. There are so many ways to get involved in FPRA at both the local and state level so I encourage you to keep expanding your knowledge and expertise in the PR industry. Please text, call, Facebook message, tweet, (or event stop by my office for an in-person conversation) if there is anything I can do for you.
