It’s hard to believe that the Spring Equinox is right around the corner. This past weekend we turned our clocks forward one hour, and I’m happy to have the extra hour of daylight. We’re on the downhill slope for the 2017/18 year, and it’s finally time to begin recruiting our 2018/19 Board of Directors for a term that begins August 2018. If you’re interested in leadership roles and want to join us on the board, then I welcome you to reach out to myself or immediate past president, Angelica DeLuccia, to learn more about the positions available.
We have so many great events planned for you this spring! This month is our 3rd Annual Beers & Peer Speed Networking Mixer with the American Advertising Federation Space Coast chapter, then on April 26 we have our annual Media Summit. This year, we’re taking you to a new spot with great views inside Port Canaveral’s Exploration Tower. Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from and network with returning and new media! We’re putting a great program together, featuring keynote speaker UCF Athletic Director, who will discuss the recent success of the UCF Knights Football advertising campaign.
This summer is approaching quickly, and that means the Florida Public Relations Association 80th Annual Conference! It’s in Jacksonville this year, and a great opportunity for professional growth and state-wide networking. If you’ve never been then I highly recommend you register. We’ll be opening applications for conference scholarships in April. This is one of the many benefits of being a Space Coast chapter member! An email with more information on how to apply will go out soon.
I wish you well, and hope to see you at one of our upcoming monthly programs!
President of Space Coast FPRA
