Happy New Year to all of our CPRS Regina members and fellow PR/Communications/Marketing colleauges throughout Saskatchewan and abroad!

We would like to thank everyone who came to our Equity, Diversity & Incusion session at the end of November, which we co-hosted with the Saskatchewan Equity and Parity Project (SEPP), and the University of Regina Politics and International Studies Students' Association (UR POLIS). We had a packed classroom to hear the amazing expert insights from Dr. Emily Grafton, Dr. Claire Carter & Winter Ross on their ED&I perspectives in the context of politics, feminism, and indigenous communication.

We are currently planning our next session, which will feature returning panelists, Mark Hunter LaVigne and Colin Babiuk, to hear all about their latest book, Public Relations Planning, Research, and Measurement, developed for both entry-level and seasoned professionals looking for a refresher on all the gems of comms planning. Be sure to grab your $20 hardcopy ($9.99 Kindle) ahead of our upcoming session featuring the authors (details to come) available for purchase on Amazon: https://a.co/d/eYkCpiQ - it's worth every penny. A definite must-add to your bookshelf!

We work hard to handpick experts from across Canada and beyond to provide you with unique and enriching professional development and networking experiences. Please keep an eye out on our CPRS Regina Events page and be sure to follow CPRS Regina on LinkedIn so you don't miss out!

We are also always looking to grow our board to help set the direction for our chapter. Check out the current CPRS Regina Board of Directors to learn more about us. There is always room to volunteer with us on projects, event work, and any specific area you may be looking to build your skillset.
