2014 Midwest District Conference site is live!

September 23, 2013

Be among the first in the District to mark your calendars and bookmark this site for the 2014 PRSA Midwest District Conference, June 18-20 in Springfield, MO.

The Southwest Missouri Chapter will be our hosts next year. The planning team is already hard at work, creating an event that has something for everyone at every stage of their professional life.

The site is not open for registration yet, but there is already…

  1. an outline of the schedule (including the Leadership Quick Start that precedes the formal conference);
  2. links to a page of conference events; and
  3. information about the venue and facilities: the Ramada Oasis Hotel & Conference Center.

Kudos to the 2014 Conference planning team for being so far ahead of the curve! Be sure to visit the site regularly for updates. We’ll post them here, too, of course, so come around any time.

See you in Springfield!

Sept. 10 Affinity Call: Membership – What’s working for you?

September 5, 2013

As we head into fall and many chapters resume their “regularly scheduled programs,” we’re wondering what your membership plans are for 2013-14:

  • How do you bring new members into your Chapter?
  • Are the PRSA membership promotions working for you? How do you leverage them?
  • Do you have tried-and-true approaches (or “tried-and-through” ones)?

Let’s chat! Join your District colleagues Tuesday, September 10 from Noon to 1 p.m. (Central) to talk about what has worked for you, what you’d like to try and what brings your members to the Chapter.

Contact Jim Streed, APR [jgstreed@integrysgroup.com] for call-in details.
