Hello, NAPRCA members!
This year has been a crazy one with COVID-19 continuing to reshape how we live, work, and play. As we close out 2021, many industries are booming. Others are struggling to regain pre-COVID momentum. And then there’s the Great Resignation – a workforce realignment unlike anything we’ve experienced before.
Amid all this change I am SO grateful for NAPRCA’s consistency in providing excellent professional development opportunities. This year’s virtual programs have been fantastic, featuring video storytellers, small business marketers and respected military communications experts. The BIG Marketing & PR Event drew high-caliber speakers and strong attendance. We have our highest membership in years. Oh, and we were once again voted Chapter of the Year! None of that would’ve been possible without our dedicated Board and committee volunteers.
Despite our “wins” in 2021, I’m looking forward to a return to face-to-face programming in January. We’re still ironing out details, but stay connected via newsletter and social channels for updates! I think I speak for many when I say, it will be wonderful to connect in-person and experience the energy of live presenters again. We also intend to provide new and exciting social engagement opportunities outside of our monthly programming – so now is the time to renew your membership if you haven’t already. There are big things coming, ya’ll!
As outgoing Chapter President, I’m honored to have played a part in supporting this organization. NAPRCA is an incredible asset for our industry and our members – our people – make it special. I’ve heard so often from other professionals around the state about how impressed they are with our chapter, and I always tell them it’s the engagement of our local professionals and students that makes a difference! Let’s keep the momentum going and have our best year yet.
Happy Holidays, and good luck to our 2022 Board!
