The PRSA 2011 Leadership Assembly and International Conference provided an opportunity to preview 2012 for the Society. The Assembly passed a proposal by the board to increase member dues by $30 effective January 1. This is the first time in 10 years that PRSA has raised its member dues, and at the same time, will expand benefits next year to include new features, such as:
– Free Webinars with PRSA membership. PRSA will offer its entire catalogue of professional development Webinars to its members — for free — starting in 2012. This represents nearly $2,000 in annual savings for members who currently participate in one PRSA webinar per month.
– Expanded focus on Chapter support. PRSA is developing webinars and material exclusively for Chapter use to create customized local professional development offerings.
– Loyalty programs to reward PRSA’s most-involved members. These initiatives will result in significant benefits for loyal and active members.
– Creation of the PRServing America awards program. This program will highlight the pro bono work undertaken by PRSA’s professional and student Chapters, Sections and Districts to strengthen and preserve the local communities in which they live and work.
In addition, we will continue to offer the robust value that PRSA is known for, including successful new initiatives:
The PRSA revamped insurance program provides members with preferred rates from GEICO for auto and Marsh U.S. Consumer for other lines of insurance. These partnerships and professional affiliations with third-party vendors continue to produce real savings for our members.
The PRSA Advocacy program champions the public relations industry to the public. Our responses to relevant, breaking issues have been published in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal, among many others.
The new design of the PRSA Jobcenter has received acclaim. PRSA is proud of being the target destination for communications employers and job-seekers.
Thank you for your continued support of PRSA!
