Welcome to CPRS Regina

Warm summer greetings to CPRS Regina and all Saskatchewan-based CPRS members!

IAP2 has some PD events coming up in Regina. Check them out here.

College of Fellows applications– Accredited CPRS members with more than 10 years’ tenure and 20 years of professional experience are invited to apply to the CPRS College of Fellows this year to take their place as one of Canada’s most respected communicators. Application deadline is Sunday, Sept. 18. Visit our website or contact Certification Coordinator Aisling Bermingham for more information.

PRK Exam – School might not start for a few more weeks, but Student Members and those within the first five years of practice may want to hit the books a bit early to prepare for the next Public Relations Knowledge exam. Registration closes Wednesday, Sept. 11, and the exam is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 14. Visit our website or contact Certification Coordinator Aisling Bermingham for more information.

PD webinar previews: Thanks to the 4th year Centennial College BPRM class, we’re pleased to offer members and non-members a sneak peek at some of our most popular webinars from the last three years. These recaps are a great way to narrow things down if you’re not quite sure where to start learning, and for non-members to get a taste of the online PD available once they join. To access the summaries, visit the Bill Rees Learning Centre.

Summer Vocation planning:  If you returned to the office from vacation only to start planning your next getaway, it might be time to do a little vocation planning by visiting the CPRS Job page. With new opportunities posted all the time, it’s a great place to start planning where you’re headed next!

Member benefits:  Once you get through all that, don’t forget to take advantage of the 20+ other benefits available to you as a CPRS member! From discounted rates on liability insurance, legal services, MRP subscriptions, and even UPS shipping, being #CPRSproud has a lot of cool perks, so make sure to dive in this month.

If you are interested in volunteering, please email any of the CPRS Regina Board members for more information. We will be opening up nominations for the CPRS Regina Board before September. Consider becoming a part of the board or let if you would like to help with PD events. How we are able to grow and put on professional development events is based on our volunteers.

Working with CPRS National, CPRS Regina hopes to build more professional association sustainability in our local chapter. I encourage members to contact myself or any of the other directors with feedback.

On behalf of your #CPRSproud Board, we hope you have a wonderful summer. 

Michelle, Natalie, Heather, Ariane, and Grant
