Join us for our next GFW PRSA luncheon on Wednesday, June 13, at Colonial Country Club!

For the past 25 years, Ruth Fitzgibbons of Richards Partners, the public relations arm of The Richards Group, has been on the front lines with a variety of clients who unexpectedly found themselves in the glaring light of uninvited media scrutiny – at a terrible time. Television cameras on your doorstep are bad, but a Twitter storm may be even worse. This program will offer the 10 Commandments of Crisis Communications (with color commentary from personal experience), plus some best practices and do’s and don’ts with earned and social media.

When: Wednesday, June 13, 2018 11:30 AM  – 1:00 PM
Central Time

Where: Colonial Country Club

GFW PRSA April Luncheon

Mentors play an important role in the Accreditation in Public Relations (APR) process, from encouraging members to seek APR to guiding candidates through to passing the exam. At the GFW PRSA luncheon on Wednesday, April 11, Malizy Scruggs, APR, media relations practice leader at The Starr Conspiracy and APR Chair of the Dallas PRSA Chapter, will talk about why APR matters, present case studies on the challenges associated with successfully mentoring candidates, and give examples of chapters who do mentoring right.

At the end of the presentation, candidates and potential mentors are invited to participate in a “Mentor Match” to begin building a strong mentorship program in our chapter.

When: April 11, 2018 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
