Loren Waldron, Vice President, Business Dev. Services, MWW Group
President, PRSA NJ
Spring has sprung! The weather in New Jersey is finally getting (consistently) warmer, the grass is greener, the flowers are blooming. This is a season of growth – and in a perfect tie-in with our 2017 theme of professional growth for our members, the seeds we started planting earlier this year are now truly starting to flourish. Our mentorship program, launched a few months ago, has already started matching up emerging and veteran PR pros to share experiences, insights, and advice. April has been “APR Month” at PRSA nationwide, and you can read about one of our own member’s plans as she begins her journey toward certification. And judging is about to start on the PRSA NJ Pyramid Awards – a celebration of the campaigns and professionals changing the PR industry in NJ.
You may have noticed that our 2017 event schedule has blossomed, as well. In fact, our most recent Meet the Media was a great success, with terrific feedback about our new “speed pitching” format. And there’s more where that came from: we’ve planned more events this year than ever before, with an eye towards creating lots of opportunities for our PRSA NJ members to meet, network, learn, and grow. Hope to see you at one soon!
