PRSA’s Southern Arizona Chapter promotes the practice of public relations in Tucson and in cities, towns and unincorporated areas throughout Southern Arizona. Since 1970, members benefit from monthly meetings, professional development seminars, Chapter communications, a local job bank, and an extensive member directory of public relations practitioners in Southern Arizona.
The Chapter’s Mentorship Program matches experienced professionals with industry newcomers, or those looking to improve their skills in specific areas. The popular PR101 Workshops focus on a variety of topics that provide members a chance to share their expertise with local nonprofits, businesses and community groups.
Monthly luncheons, usually held at the historic Arizona Inn in the heart of midtown Tucson, update members on the latest tools, trends and topics through presentations by local, regional and national speakers. Guests are always welcomed.
The prestigious PRSA Networking Event and IMPACT Awards of Excellence is held each October. This event is the perfect opportunity to mix and mingle with PR colleagues, communicators and industry leaders. A festive cocktail reception is followed by the recognition of public relations excellence in Southern Arizona. In addition, PRSA Southern Arizona Chapter collaborates regularly with other professional organizations through joint luncheons and networking events.
"Ethics and Social Media in the Workplace or How to Keep People Honest" presented by Joseph Kroeger, a partner with Snell & Wilmer, and Abbe Goncharsky, VP of Human Resources and Associate Counsel at Mister Car Wash.
Cost: Chapter members and communications partners $25 | Nonmembers $35* | Students $15
How ethical are you? Most people have a general sense about what is appropriate in the workplace and that there are certain things you should never do, like stealing from the cash register. These issues seem be black and white, but lots of ethical issues involve gray areas.
Joe and Abbe will discuss ethics law, social media in the workplace and human resources policies and procedures that help keep people honest. There will be lots of time for questions. Bring your ethical dilemmas for thought-provoking analysis and discussion.
Registration Deadline: Friday, Nov. 14, 2014 by noon.
