Oh, Baby!! | A Message From Abby Lovett, PRSA Chicago President

0 Comment

It has been quite a year for PRSA Chicago – and we’re just heading into the fourth quarter!

We have revamped our programming schedule and the chapter has responded positively. The team has already seen increased attendance at events and garnered fantastic feedback via our post-event surveys. We’re making good on our goal to offer various events at assorted times (e.g., lunchtime panels, evening socials, 2013 membership breakfast), and serving more of our membership with more valuable, diversified content.

This year’s Skyline Awards was another record-setter, buttressed by incredible entries, a stellar lineup of individual award winners and an incredible event attended by Chicago’s finest PR pros. The recent 2013 Midwest District Conference held in Omaha drew a blue-chip cast of speakers that invigorated the region and packed the house.

This year has also brought a big personal development for my husband and I; we are expecting our first child at the end of September! As such, PRSA Chicago President-Elect Mary Gura, will take the reins a tad early. I am incredibly grateful to Mary for everything she’s done for our chapter to date, and for her flexibility in helping me as my family expands.

Under her continued leadership, I have no doubt that our chapter’s momentum will persist. I encourage you to follow the action via our social media channels – Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn – and continue to strengthen the chapter through our events and surveys.

Thank you for your ongoing support,


Abby Lovett
2013 President, PRSA Chicago
