End of Year Reflections

As 2020 draws to a close, challenge yourself to continue to advance your career and your knowledge through PRSA. Our Chapter’s strength is a credit to the many dedicated individuals on our Board of Directors and other volunteers who come together as a team to serve your professional development and networking needs and interests. Congratulations to everyone who gave of their time and talent to persevere through a challenging, unprecedented pandemic year. That’s the power of teamwork and positive public relations professionals who demonstrate a “can do, will do” attitude.

Chapter President Ryan Johnson was the glue that calmly and capably guided our chapter through an unprecedented year when the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to shift from in-person events to online sessions, without missing a beat. Thank you, Ryan, for your steadfast, encouraging, leadership in a year no one could have predicted. In trying times like these, our professional friendships and relationships mean all the more as our chapter grew even stronger as we worked through 2020’s challenges.

A special thanks also goes to the Drake University PRSSA Chapter. It was a pleasure to meet with you virtually December 1 to discuss the importance of ethics in public relations. Drake PRSSA members asked great questions and showed a genuine interest in carrying on PRSA ethics as they prepare to embark on their careers. Our profession’s future is bright, as communications skills are in high demand, and ethical, professional communicators are sought-after in any job market.

As you reflect on 2020, take time to thank those who helped you through this challenging year. Expressing your encouragement and your appreciation are great gifts you can give to others in any season.
