Just a few of the friendly faces expected to make cameos next week!

Enough with the Egg Nog!

Ditch that Dreidel!

Recycle that Reindeer Sweater!

I am sorry, my friends, but the holidays are over. In fact, it is mid-January.

But, look on the bright side – it means a whole new year of networking and professional development opportunities with fellow communications professionals.

That is why I am personally inviting you to the first major networking event of the year – the PRSA Sip’n’Chat!

The fabulous event will take place on Tuesday, January 31 at Coach & Willie’s in Downtown Phoenix from 5:30 - 7:30 p.m. and will give members and non-members alike the chance to hear from our 2012 chapter president, Christie Silverstein, board members and the “clusters,” which is a fancy term for all of the subcommittees (networking events, media breakfasts, master practitioners, et al) that put on PRSA events throughout the year.

Oh – and did we mention your registration fee ($10 for members, $15 for non-members who register in advance online) gets you free parking, yummy appetizers and a drink ticket PLUS happy hour specials all night long?

If you are in the communications world here in Phoenix, this event is NOT to be missed.
