Minnesota PRSA Board Recommends Bylaw Updates 

The Minnesota PRSA Board of Directors recommends that several updates to the Chapter’s bylaws be made. The updates would ensure that the Chapter continues to operate and be governed in accordance with relevant policies and best practices for trade organizations like ours.  Per the Chapter’s existing bylaws, members will vote on whether or not to adopt these updates during the next Minnesota PRSA Annual Meeting. To review the recommended updates, please download the revised bylaws HERE.

Mentorship Program Application Deadline Extended to Nov. 30

The Minnesota PRSA Mentoring Program connects PR professionals at all levels who have prioritized mentoring as a part of their professional goals – whether they are looking for guidance or to give back to the profession. The chapter is currently taking applications for both mentors and mentees for 2016. To learn more and to submit an application, please visit the Mentorship Program page HERE.


Committee Volunteer Opportunities

Our chapter offers multiple ways to do both those things, whether you’re interested in joining a committee or offering up your time for shorter-term assignments.  For more information on any of our committees, please review the committee descriptions HERE.
