We’ve seen the stories. A fast food employee was fired after posting photos of himself bathing in the restaurant’s sink to Facebook. A woman lost her job at a large tech company because of something she said on Twitter. These incidents illustrate why it is critical to create a social media policy for employees.

Our panel of experts will outline steps to begin crafting a policy, as well as what to include and how to implement it.

Participants will learn:

  • Best practices and recent examples of workplace social media policies
  • Legal and HR pitfalls to avoid
  • Tips for empowering employees to advocate on social media


  • Darci Ahlin-Stieren, PHR, HR Solutions, LLC

  • Lars Danner, Deputy General Counsel, Alaska Communications

  • Kirsten Schultz, Executive Director, Marketing & Communications, Providence Health & Services Alaska

Thank you to our March luncheon sponsor, Alyeska Pipeline Service Company!

Registration closes FOUR business days before event. Luncheons are non-refundable after registration closes.

In order to honor our commitment with the venue, the PRSA Alaska Chapter will close registration for all Anchorage programs at noon, four business days prior to each professional development session. This will ensure your seat and meal at the session. If you purchase luncheon tickets and are unable to attend, we suggest you offer your ticket to a colleague or student. If you would like the chapter to open the seats to others, please email Josie WIlson. Once registration closes, all ticket sales are final. At-the-door sales will only be accepted if space is available at the start of the meeting. If seats are not available, walk-ins may purchase a late registration ticket to the event and receive coffee service.

New pricing structure:

At PRSA Alaska, we often hear how valuable the local professional development opportunities are for professionals. We think so too! These opportunities, usually in the form of luncheons held each month, are a great way to improve your skills and network with peers in a similar profession. While PR professionals don’t always love math and budgets, we do know that our revenue must meet our expenses. There have been modest price increase for all professional development opportunities in Anchorage and Fairbanks in the past year. As always, members will still receive a discounted rate. Non-members will pay a slightly higher rate. If you’re not a member and want to become one, learn more on our website.
