The next PRSA Midwest District call will be Wed. Aug. 24 at 10 a.m. Central and we have a jam-packed agenda. In addition to the regular national, district and chapter updates, we also will discuss the proposed national dues increase. Philip Tate, PRSA treasurer, will join us for this discussion to address feedback and questions from chapter representatives.
Time permitting, we also will discuss the district’s plans at the 2011 Leadership Assembly, which will be Oct. 15 in Orlando, Fla. Plans include a Saturday night dinner and Sunday morning meeting for all Midwest chapter delegates and interested 2011 International Conference attendees.
Other agenda items include 2012 District conference planning, September and November affinity calls. Each Midwest District chapter is encouraged to have a representative on our monthly calls. Please contact Renee Robinson, Midwest District chair, if you need call-in information.
