NAU PRSSA Celebrates 30 Years

November 4, 2009

NAU PRSSA Birthday CakeThe NAU PRSSA Chapter celebrated its 30th anniversary by inducting 23 new members.  This brings the chapter’s membership to more than 30-strong.

Chapter President Meghan Almaas and her executive board held the induction event at NAU’s DuBois Center.  As the chapter’s PRSA professional advisor, I was also invited to speak and participate in the ceremony.    

Students always ask such good questions:  “What do you think of the international PR opportunities?” and “Have you ever hired someone without a PR background?” are two that come to mind. 

In short, my answers were, “there are tremendous international scottopportunities in PR and no, HMA Public Relations has not hired anyone without a PR background.” 

It is always fun to be around such enthusiastic PR students.  In fact, six of them are going to be attending the PRSA’s International Conference in San Diego, Nov. 7-10.  I am hopeful their optimism and energy will rub off on some of the other attendees.
