Spring is in the air today and it’s that time of year again: MEMBERSHIP MONTH!

CPRS Membership Month

I think back to when I originally joined CPRS as a student member and how a career in public relations seemed an achievable but distant goal. The professional development and networking opportunities I took advantage of as a student helped me move my career forward. Many of those early connections at CPRS professional development luncheons turned into invaluable resources 10 years later when my career was established. One thing that I always remind people of, both here and across Canada, is that Winnipeg is a small: everyone knows everyone. That makes our PR networks all the more important in job hunting and knowing who to ask when you need some insight into handling a new PR challenge.

With this in mind, here are FIVE reasons to join CPRS in March:

  1. Join in March and automatically receive a 12-month subscription to PRSA’s Public Relations Tactics courtesy of CPRS – a value of $79.10.
  2. One lucky new member who joins in March will win a complimentary registration for the 2017 National Conference in Kelowna – a $1,525 value!
  3. Ability to enter the National Awards program in 2017 – The deadline to apply for entry of exceptional public relations and communications management campaigns is March 6, 2017.
  4. Complimentary webinars – Monthly professional development webinars are offered as an exclusive member-only benefit;

And there’s more! Check out the full list of benefits here.
