During this year’s Listening Tour, members said:
“we need to make sure that everyone has a voice at a table” with responsibilities that make a difference for anyone, anywhere.
And that starts with our chapter leadership.
Call to Service
This year all members were considered for service as we piloted a new model. To ensure we have the broadest representation of voices, we are offering a unique opportunity to step up and apply for the 2018 Secretary/President-Elect role, helping build and lead the future of PRSA Oregon.
Application opens Sept. 25, 2017, and closes on Oct. 4, 2017, at 11:59 p.m. PST.
We’ve steamlined the two roles together as part of a revised Organizational Chart to better serve the statewide chapters’ needs. Of the 12 leadership roles for members seeking strategic planning and management experience, the Secretary/President-Elect will yield some of the most significant results.
Now, this role offers hands-on experience in the chapter’s operations that will better inform strategic planning and ease the presidency transition. View the Secretary/President Job Description.
- Due Paying Chapter member
- APR or accreditation completed prior to 2019
- Previous Chapter, District or Section leadership experience (anywhere in U.S) or previous nonprofit board leadership in lieu of PRSA experience
- At least 5 years’ industry experience
Members say that serving the chapter has helped them get jobs, get connections and get training – and that now applies across all of Oregon and SW Washington.
You are invited to apply for the role of PRSA Oregon Secretary/President-Elect.
Applications are due by 10/4/17, 11:59 p.m. PST.
Qualified applicants will be considered and a vetted applicant will proceed to a nomination with approval of the nominating committee. Elections for next year’s leadership are coming up soon in November so that leaders and committees can hit the ground running on Jan. 1, 2018.
