PRSA Detroit’s April Networking Event Recap

By: Megan Peterson

Last night we (Detroit PRSA) did one of the things we do best: network. The awesome, annual networking event was held at Lockhart’s BBQ in Royal Oak, Michigan. Here, professionals were able to introduce themselves to new and seasoned members and students were able to get to know the chapter as well. Many students from local universities, were in attendance to get to know PRSA Detroit. In fact, students were challenged to talk to over a dozen professionals about different items that ranged from working on internal communications projects to working as an independent practitioner and more. These completed ‘networking scavenger hunt’ documents were entered into a random drawing that led to Elissa Gonzalez, Emily Ifversen and Tracy Daniel all winning PRSA memberships upon graduation! Students also had a designated area to get their resumes reviewed by Detroit PRSA pros.

Thanks to Lockhart’s for having us, and to everyone who could join us.

Be sure to check out our upcoming events for more fun!
