As many of you know, I recently became president of CPRS Toronto. This was not the result of any astute political campaigning or soon-to-be-broken promises, but part of the regular succession process (I was first VP).
I’m excited to be taking the reins of the organization – one that I believe in – at a time when I think we’re at a crossroads in profession (both economically and in its practice). I feel there’s a strong opportunity for CPRS Toronto to really become a leader in combining social media with traditional PR, something I talk about in my first prez’s message.
But it’s not up to me alone and I look forward to hearing from members with their thoughts and ideas about how to achieve this.
I also wanted to let you know that from time to time, I will be highlighting CPRS Toronto events and programs (not that I haven’t in the past).
And I would like to thank past president Lawrence Stevenson for his vision, passion and commitment to the organization. Big shoes to fill, Lawrence (and I don’t mean that literally).
