PRSA Young Pros – The Upcoming Year

The PRSA Southeastern Wisconsin Young Pros committee is excited to share plans for the upcoming year. The Young Pros welcomes five brand new committee members including Erica Rasmussen as chair, Nick Herff handling communications and social media, Kate Kazan coordinating events, Greg Brey as treasurer, and Christine Piela taking on the 2015-16 Mentor Program. The committee’s primary focus is to develop the chapter’s young professionals to produce the next generation of successful Public Relations experts.

The Mentor Program is currently wrapping up a successful 2014-2015 season with a networking social on crisis communications that will take place on May 7th. Details can be found on the PRSA Southeastern Wisconsin website.

The 2015-2016 season will provide innovative ways to start conversations and share knowledge. Christine is working with previous mentor program chairs to provide the best mentor/mentee experience possible. Be on the lookout for more details coming soon!

Our first panel discussion on April 23rd was a success! Several PR professionals spoke to the benefits and challenges on receiving their accreditation. Future Young Pros events include panel discussions, networking and socials, some of which will be joined by other Young Pro organizations such as the Milwaukee Press Club, Ad 2 Milwaukee and more.
