A Letter From the President

PRCA Family,


As the dog days of summer have gone, is anyone else as doggone tired as I am? I hope you all are staying safe. It’s tough to navigate this season!


So, how did the dog days of summer get its name? Sirius is the brightest star in the sky and one in a group of stars that form the constellation Canis Major, meaning “Greater Dog.” It’s no surprise, then, that the nickname of this big, bold star became “the Dog Star.” I don’t know much about constellations, but the images I find of dogs sure are cute! What stands out to me, however, is that it’s a big, bold star. 



You are the expert in your field. A trained professional in ethics, communication tactics, and tools! I encourage you to continue to stand as the voice of your organization. Approach management with your bold vision and do big things.


As you make plans, add to your calendar continuing education and register for our workshop on September 14th from 9-3! Socially Speaking features social media experts who will share first-hand knowledge of campaigns, best practices, and trends in social media.


If I can help you in any way, let me know
