New Year’s Resolutions for PR Professionals

Join us for our first 2018 luncheon on Wednesday, January 10, at Colonial Country Club!

Kick off the New Year with helpful tips from seasoned PR pros! The Greater Fort Worth Chapter of PRSA will host its first luncheon of the year on Wednesday, January 10, at Colonial Country Club. Five esteemed panelists from a variety of PR backgrounds will help us start 2018 on the right foot. What should we focus on this year? What’s better left behind? What skills should we master? What “lifestyle” changes can be sustained year-in and year-out? Our panel is eager to answer these questions and more as we work to stay on top of our PR game in 2018.

September 2017 Luncheon


“Public Relations in a Fake News World”
Wednesday, September 13 – GFW PRSA September Luncheon

Sponsored By: Meltwater

2017 has seen the rise of accusations of deliberate, fabricated news – a type of yellow journalism or propaganda called “fake news.” Whether those allegations are true or not, PR practitioners must remember their ethical center around best practices to adhere to when they are asked to represent their clients or brands amid these conversations.

Join us on Wednesday, September 13, 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., as Dr. Julie O’Neil from TCU, Dr. Mark Tremayne from UTA, and Dr. Kay Colley from Texas Wesleyan University discuss the challenges professional communicators face in the new fake news climate.
