Welcome Back PRSSA!

By: Chrissy Tansey, President


Thank you to everyone who attended our general meeting last night. We were happy to see so many new members as well as some familiar faces. Our executive board and chairs have great plans for PRSSA this year and are excited to finally hit the ground running.

In case you missed last night’s meeting, here are a few important takeaways:

  • Committee meetings will begin on Tuesday, Sept. 8.

Below is a schedule of meeting times and places.
