Bylaws Change Proposed for December Meeting
Breakfast Program Will Feature Video for Social Media
Please plan to attend “Leveraging Video to Increase Your Social Media Impact & Annual Membership Meeting” at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 18. Information about the program and the registration link can be found below.
In addition to the program, the chapter will be holding its annual meeting, during which we will hold a vote for our chapter’s 2014 board of directors as well as a proposed change to the chapter’s bylaws. For the vote, we require a quorum of at least 10 percent of the voting members present in person, so we hope to have a terrific turnout.
Currently our bylaws state that the annual membership meeting can be held only in the month of December. We would like to extend this to a two-month period, to allow more flexibility with the timing of our programming. The new bylaw item would read, “There shall be an annual membership meeting each year held in November or December at such date, time and place as may be designated by the board.”
For the vote, we require a quorum of at least 10 percent of the voting members present in person, so we hope to have a terrific turnout. It’s important that your vote is counted.

Feedback Needed: Future of Industry Accreditation
In May, PRSA announced plans to enhance the profile and prestige of the Accredited in Public Relations (APR) credential. The first step was to hire a consulting firm to do a thorough review of the APR and make suggestions on how to improve the credential. PRSA retained Organizational Performance Group (OPG), and after several months of research and analysis OPG has issued a final report laying out their findings and recommendations. The comment period of their report will continue through Friday, Nov. 22. To see the report and comment on it, click here.
