Our monthly student chapter FPRA meeting will be this Thursday, February 24th from 4:30 p.m.- 6:30 p.m. There will be refreshments so please RSVP to me at firstname.lastname@example.org by Tuesday, February 22nd so we have enough for everyone. Cindy Rodriguez will be speaking on lobbying. You do not have to be a member to come to this meeting to see what we are all about.
The next local Dick Pope/Polk County FPRA meeting will be Wednesday, March 16th from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m at the Lakeland Yacht Club on Lake Hollingsworth. Please let me know ASAP whether or not you would like to attend this event so we can get excuse forms arranged. Students that have paid their membership at the Florida Public Relations Association website will only have to pay $10 for lunch. Students that are not members will have to pay $15.
We’re having a three-day event April 5th- 7th. It will start at 7 p.m. each night and we plan on serving refreshments. One night will focus on image development, another will focus on networking, and another on social media. Mark your calendars! This is will be an event you won’t want to miss.
Also coming up is Club Night. I do not have a date or time for it, though. The club that brings the most members will win $100. That money will return to you in some form or another, so be prepared to proudly represent FPRA!
This Friday is the deadline for the FPRA Scholarship. Applicants must be juniors or seniors as of Fall 2011. Email me if you would like more information.
