PRSA Suburban Chicago Chapter
Tuesday, October 14, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM
DOC Wine Bar in Lombard, IL
Media relations is the most visible part of public relations, and at the same time potentially the least understood. Barnaby Dinges of FleishmanHillard Chicago will keynote our Year-end Holiday Party. Barnaby will provide examples of techniques that work (and some that don’t) … and a real world example in an update on the Affordable Care Act as it begins year two in Illinois with the start of the annual open enrollment on November 15th.
We will also be celebrating the end of our 2014 programs with food, wine, prizes and our annual Toys for Tots toy collection to benefit the United States Marine Corps Foundation. Bring a new, unwrapped toy to the November 11th Holiday Party and receive a coupon for $5 off any 2015 program. Bring two toys and receive a $10 off coupon. Help PRSA Suburban Chicago spread some cheer this holiday season!
