Hello PRSA Gulfcoast Friends!

Welcome to June and the return of in-person events! As PR professionals, we celebrate excellence in journalism, whether print, broadcast, or digital, and our relationships with these talented individuals who dedicate their time to keeping us informed. Our local journalists are instrumental in helping us spread the word of the great work our organizations are doing. So what a perfect month to host a media breakfast as our first post-pandemic in-person meeting with our friends at the Florida Public Relations Association Southwest Florida Chapter. Celebrate networking with your colleagues again and engage in a conversation with Southwest Florida’s premiere media members about the state of our media and how PR professionals can build relationships and get their organizations’ messages out. Now that season is winding down, take a morning to invest in yourself and your relationships at Mapping Your Media. See below for more information. Our media breakfasts tend to fill up quickly. This event is limited to the first 50 people, so don’t delay in registering. Click here to register.

I’m looking forward to seeing you (and being in the same room) at this special event!

Please be sure to watch our monthly diversity, equity, and inclusion video by our DEI chair, Pam Fultz. This month we are celebrating diversity by recognizing our LGBTQ colleagues and their contributions to our profession. Click here to watch.

I invite you to connect with us at our monthly meetings, on social media, or feel free to email me at cwithorn@cfcollier.org.

Best regards,

Cindi Withorn
