2013/2014 CPRS Manitoba Annual Report

Our goal for the year was similar to years previous: to demonstrate CPRS Manitoba is the leading organization for public relations and communications professionals in the province. We always aim to foster the professional interests of our members, while promoting and advocating for our profession as a whole. The principal ways we have aimed to achieve our goal are by delivering value to our members through quality professional development events, good member communications, and by promoting the added value of being members of a national organization.
