The 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 opportunities 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.
