August 2017 President’s Message by Sabrina Kidwai

August 6, 2017

Hi PRSA-NCC members,

I hope everyone is having a great summer! As we head into the last days of summer, we are gearing up for a busy couple of months. Board nominations are opening this month, Thoth Awards are in October, and we have several events coming up.

When I became a PRSA member 11 years ago, I set a couple of goals for myself including the types of skills I wanted to learn, to become a volunteer leader, and be an active member of the board. What do you want to accomplish the rest of this year? What about in five years? How can PRSA-NCC help you become a better leader or professional?    

We had a great new membership luncheon in July, and I enjoyed meeting everyone and learning what you wanted out of the chapter. I attended a great session about Instagram and Snap Chat stories in July, and I had three new ideas come out of that event. I encourage you to take part in a great event coming up!  

One of my goals as chapter president is to build a pipeline of volunteer leaders for the board that include: committee chairs, board members, and the executive committee (secretary, treasurer, VPs, and president-elect). If you are thinking about how you want to get involved, please reach out to me. I would love to have coffee or bubble tea, so we can discuss the best way for you to be involved.

I look forward to meeting you at an upcoming PRSA-NCC event.

Best Regards,

Sabrina Kidwai
President, PRSA-NCC
