October is a busy month for PRSA Suburban Chicago, with a stellar program October 11th on managing a crisis in the midst of disaster with Ryan Yantis, Principal of Yantis Consulting, a private public relations and crisis mitigation practice, recounting managing communications at the Pentagon in the aftermath of 9/11.
A Career Workshop on Saturday, Oct. 22nd will help you jumpstart that search for a new position, and we haven’t forgotten the need for some R&R to recharge the creative juices: our last PR After Hoursof the season is on October 27th at Houlihan’s in Oak Brook. It’s time to rev up your PR career, and with something for everyone, we hope to see you in October!
All communicators need to think about and prepare for crisis scenarios for the workplace. But what do you do when your workplace is the site of a terrorist attack, with hundreds killed and badly injured? While basic operations and infrastructure is in a shambles, how do you meet the surge of media interest, increased public interest, and care for your workforce and those most affected by the attack? Learn how the Army prepared for the first anniversary of the 9/11 Attacks and sought to better inform the American people about what happened that day in the Pentagon. Register now.
The October Career Workshop will feature presentations and personalize critiques on job hunting techniques, resume design, portfolio organization, networking and business etiquette. To attend, register here.
The PR After Hours is a purely social gathering to meet existing colleagues and make new ones in a social setting. PRSA Suburban Chicago holds these events periodically throughout the year to encourage the lighter side of the profession. October’s event will be held at Houlihan’s in Oak Brook. It’s pay-as-you-go, so you can spend as much or as little as you want. To let us know how many to expect, please RSVP here.
