November President's Report

Since it’s November, and Thanksgiving is right around the corner, I want to take this opportunity to say how thankful I am for PRAL and the friendships I’ve made through this great organization. A little more than five years ago, I was a relatively new member when I was asked to serve on the board of directors. I had no idea the journey that commitment would send me on.

It’s hard to say what would have happened had I not said yes, but I’m confident I wouldn’t be where I am in my career today had I not. All of the places I’ve landed along the way have all been connected to my involvement in PRAL, and they have all led me to where I am today - in a job that I love and a profession I’m incredibly passionate about. And the people I’ve met along the way are the cherry on the top. I’m thankful for everyone who has played a part, and I’m thankful to have the opportunity to give back to the organization through my role as president. It really has come full circle!

It’s been a very fulfilling term as president so far. Our last few monthly meetings have been especially well attended and energized with thoughtful discussion, and it’s really been great to see. If you have any additional feedback on our monthly meetings - positive or negative - we want to hear it! You can email us at [email protected] or you’re always welcome to message me directly at [email protected]

Our membership survey recently closed, so thanks to everyone who participated. It will be very helpful to us as we look at making meaningful changes to better serve our members in the coming years. Special thanks to our membership chair Lexi Verret for her hard work on getting that together. If you weren’t able to fill it out but are still interested in letting your voice be heard, please let her know. 

I am extremely excited about our awards program we have cooking for next year as well. It’s going to be a great lineup of speakers, and the competition is going to be fierce for the best PR projects in BR. As you’re wrapping up your year, please be thinking about any of your work that may be deserving of recognition. Submissions will open in January.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Caroline Isemann
PRAL-BR President
