Attention NAPRCA members: Please take a moment to provide your feedback for the SPRF membership survey. All members of PRCA are also automatically part of the regional Southern Public Relations Federation, so this is for you! Four years have passed since we last prepared a membership profile that gives us a snapshot of just exactly who we are across the four states that make up SPRF. Your responses are greatly appreciated.
The 2015 PRo Bono Project committee and NAPRCA board members are thrilled to announce that Still Serving Veterans has been selected as this year’s project winner. We are all so excited to work with an organization that is doing such great things for our military members and their families. Still Serving Veterans (SSV) is an Alabama-based Veterans’ service organization that empowers wounded warriors, Veterans, and their families to optimally transition into meaningful new careers and post-military lives with all the benefits and services that they have earned-at no cost to them.
The PRo Bono Project committee members will assist the organization by helping to develop a realistic and actionable plan for branding and marketing to support their future expansion throughout the state. The project will include a phased plan that ensures Still Serving Veterans is implementing best practices in all areas of communication.
This year’s committee was overwhelmed with the number of applications they received from such deserving organizations. While we cannot develop a full strategy plan for each group, all candidates will receive 2 complimentary tickets to attend any upcoming NAPRCA meetings of their choice and learn valuable skills to enhance their communication efforts.
If you are interested in serving on this year’s PRo Bono Project committee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
