PR Industry Insights

PR professionals are no strangers to the stress of competing deadlines, fire drills and managing crises. I often hear PR pros recite the mantra, “It’s PR, not ER,” as a reminder to place perspective on their workloads. PR can be a demanding job, but it’s also a rewarding one. Taking the time to prioritize your mental health is necessary to build positive life experiences and achieve personal and professional goals.

PRCA Launches
A Letter From the President

President

PRCA Montgomery

Hello PRCA Montgomery members,

 

PRCA Montgomery was on fire during the month of April, and we are excited to turn up the heat for May! We gained valuable insight during the PRCA State Ignite Conference while bringing home some great wins – including the 2023 Chapter of the Year! Our nominee for the Professional Achievement Award - Megan Hughes, APR - was also selected for that award at the State level and will go on to represent PRCA at the regional SPRF conference. We couldn’t be prouder of Megan for this accomplishment! PRCA Montgomery members Mary Wilson, APR, and Troy Johnson also brought home some wins. Congratulations on a job well done to our members, our Board, and the chapter!

 

Our members were out and about in the community this month volunteering, connecting with students, and enhancing the profession. We even have a Hall of Famer among us! That’s right, Christie Aitken, immediate Past President of PRCA Montgomery, was inducted into the Lee High School Hall of Fame this month! We love to see all the amazing things you all are doing, so if you have some good news, please feel free to share it with us!

 

We also had a great time learning the art of staying motivated from Tasha McDonald Carter during our April luncheon. Next month, we’re taking on the topic of mental health with our first Mental Health Matters panel! Be sure to register for that meeting and bring a friend.

 

Thank you to all who filled out the member survey. We’ve gone through the results and are implementing new initiatives based on your feedback. Stay tuned for some new enhancement and updates as we strive to serve you better and ensure you get the most out of your membership.

 

If I haven’t said it already, I am grateful that you have chosen to participate in membership with PRCA Montgomery, and I hope you are benefiting from and enjoying your membership as much as I am enjoying the opportunity to serve you! If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions on ways we can serve you better, I am only an email, call, or text away!

 

In dedication and service,

Mikala McCurry, APR

2024 President
