Greetings, fellow PR Professionals!
November is one of my favorite months because I make it a point to schedule time to do a recap of the year and begin planning for the next year. However, November can also be a stressful month because of the upcoming holiday season.
That is why this month’s key word is assistance. Sometimes it is easier to give assistance than it is to ask for it but a key part of achieving goals is knowing when to ask for help. If there is anything I can do for you, please reach out to me. If you are looking for ways to get involved but do not know where to start, I invite you to text, call, email, FB message me, etc. If you are not sure what something means or think there is an opportunity for us to do something that will better serve our members, please reach out to me about that as well.
I know firsthand the power of asking for help and how it can be a positive game-changer in a team setting.
Here are a few things to keep in mind as we move toward the end of 2018:
* Professional development is a major focus area for your board. You are encouraged to attend the monthly luncheons and participate in other professional development opportunities, such as beginning the accreditation process.
* Members are encouraged to engage with the chapter! We have many involvement opportunities that do not require a large time commitment. Please reach out to me and I will get you plugged in with a committee that best aligns with your strengths.
* Making time for fun is important. I challenge you to make sure you are taking time for yourself and fitting some fun into your life this month. If you are looking to have fun with the Ocala Chapter, make sure you have the following events on your calendar: monthly mixers, upcoming community events, and the holiday social.
