“As a daily news reporter turned communications executive in the 1990s, I soon learned I PR. I joined PRSA, which led me to obtain my Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) in 2009. I’ve never looked back. I could never have started my own PR consultancy, which I adore, without the experience, knowledge and connections I gained through PRSA and its NJ chapter.” Christopher Biddle, President, Biddle Communications & Public Relations LLC
“From being an extremely active member of PRSSA during my time at Rowan University, I knew I wanted to be involved in PRSA once I started my professional career; however, I didn’t realize just how valuable being a member – and not just a member, but an active member – would be. I’m constantly being introduced to new professionals around the state of New Jersey, and regardless of whether they work for an agency or in-house at a corporation or non-profit, I’ve found that there are endless lessons to learn.” Anjelica Sena, Senior Associate, Stern Strategy Group
“We all know the day-to-day of PR can be hectic, and it’s so easy to get caught up. PRSA gives you an incredible opportunity to look beyond your own four walls. By meeting such a diverse mix of people, all dedicated to the same profession but in so many different ways, I’ve learned so much – and built an amazing support system I can’t believe I didn’t find sooner!” Ilana Zalika, Principal & Co-Founder, Resound Marketing
