It was a very good year…
For many in our industry, 2011 was filled with both growth and change. Our industry is in the midst of what may be some of the most prolific changes to impact our business – EVER! I have watched our profession evolve more in the past few years than it had in the previous decade.
I have watched our chapter progress as well, redefining itself according to the rapidly changing realities that are impacting our profession and its professionals. We began this year with four key goals designed to make the chapter both progressive and pertinent. They included providing relevant programming that addressed the needs of today’s PR practitioners, enhancing our internal communications by leveraging new technology and enlisting active member participation including better engaging our South Jersey membership.
