Dear PPRS Members,
It was great to see many of you at our first event of the year in January! About 30 members gathered at Triscari Video Web Marketing to learn more about creating video content – and got a free complimentary headshot! What a great way to kick off 2024! Thank you to Triscari for your financial sponsorship of this event, which helped keep the meeting cost low for members.
During this meeting, we announced a few new initiatives that we’re excited about. What else can you look forward to this year?
- A new membership recruitment challenge – details coming soon!
- A new pilot program will allocate the $1,000 we typically use for one PPRS Scholarship and divide it to support reimbursement of meeting costs for local college students who attend PPRS programming.
- Proposed bylaws changes that will create a young professional membership level and offer other updates to modernize our bylaws. Every member can review those changes and provide feedback before being voted on.
While we had a great kickoff to 2024, PPRS continues to face several challenges, including a volunteer shortage and declining membership, and we’re working to get past them. But we can’t do it without you.
That’s why we’re pivoting our program this month and are hosting two member-only Caffeinated Connections Roundtable discussions on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024, so you can help shape the future of our organization. Details and event registration can be found below. To help guide those conversations, please take our 5-question Membership Check-In survey.
If you have any other feedback or comments before the Caffeinated Connections sessions, please get in touch with me at email@example.com.
