How does membership in PRSA assist you?
“Alaska’s PRSA members are incredibly talented communicators. I’ve learned so much from them and enjoyed collaborating on projects,” notes Blythe. “I especially love getting together informally to talk about communications challenges that we can’t air in public.”
PRSA has also helped her develop public speaking skills with insights and opportunities to practice at PRSA events and conferences.
