October Update

Hey Everyone!
All of the officers were so thrilled with the turnout for our field trip to Rawle Murdy on Wednesday. You guys asked some great questions and I hope you all enjoyed the tour and learned something new about the world of public relations and marketing.
The field trip may be over, but we have a lot more in store for ya'll this month. The first thing I want to highlight is this month's PRSA luncheon at Virginia's on King. On October 18th at 11:45 am (lunch served at noon) the Charleston chapter of PRSA will be hosting a seminar titled "What's Your Google Ranking" featuring Melissa Allan, Communications Manager for Motley Rice LL, sharing her secrets for search engine optimization.
The price for students is only $15. Those of you who are familiar with Virginia's know that's a really great deal! As always the PRSSA strongly urges you to attend these luncheons if you can. Not only is it a great deal for fabulous food but it's an incredible networking opportunity.
The second thing I want to mention that we have planned for this month is our PR professional panel. Within the next week there will be a post specifically dedicated to this panel but heres a little sneak peak. We will have local professionals from different areas of the PR world ready to talk about the journey from a college degree to a successful career. We'll have someone representing political PR, sports PR, and the non profit sector.
One final reminder, PRSSA annual membership fees are due by October 21st. If you would like to become a full member of our organization please submit your membership application and member fees to Audrey Horne asap. If you need a copy of the application let me know and I will be sure to get you one.
As always feel free to email me at with any questions you have! I hope everyone has a fabulous friday, a wicked weekend, and a fantastic fall break!
