A Note from the President

One of our chapter goals is enhancing professional growth. This April is APR month, so I want to encourage you to consider obtaining your Accreditation in Public Relations (APR).  As a communications professional, your success is dependent on staying relevant, resourceful and on the leading-edge. We all lead busy lives, but we're here to support you as you showcase your hard-earned knowledge and commitment to life-long learning by attaining your APR. Our PRSA Nebraska Board of Directors Accreditation Chair, Jim Bush can help you get started and answer questions you may have. 

Another goal for our chapter this year is elevating knowledge through thought leadership. Participating in surveys and providing feedback helps us support students, expand our knowledge and advances the profession.
We have been asked to participate in an organizational psychology research study at Southeast Missouri State University, using the Gallup CliftonStrength Finder. The purpose is to investigate the strengths of professionals in different professions. Click below to take the survey.

Join us for our Monthly Program on May 11

As communicators, we have a lot of power in shaping the narrative in our communities. You'll learn the impact that trauma - and re-living trauma - has on people (and that we've all experienced trauma to some degree). Our expert speakers Jill Heggen with Omaha Women's Fund and Jessica Kroeker of Project Harmony also will teach us how to: check our assumptions and biases, ask trauma-sensitive questions, consume media in a trauma-informed way, and other important skills. 


We need your feedback! 

Though the PRSA Nebraska Paper Anvil Awards Gala was only a few months ago, we are already beginning to plan next year's event and we’d like your input!

If you attended the gala on January 23, 2019, please take this short survey.

The survey will take three to five minutes and give you the opportunity to share what you liked, what you’d like to see changed and what you hope to see in the future.

Want to get involved with the next PRSA Nebraska Paper Anvil Awards Gala?  Please contact Laramy Pieper or Kara Kostal.

Don't get caught in the latest email phishing scam!

“Phishing” is the practice of pretending to be a friend, coworker, business partner, or other reputable source to gain private information. Recently, PRSA Nebraska's Board of Directors experienced a common scam slipping through spam filters where scammers pretend to be your organization’s president or vice president. By pretending to be someone the recipient knows, the scammer lulls their target into a false sense of security, luring them into a response. Adding to the vulnerability, many of us check email on smartphones, where an incorrect email address is easy to miss.

The best way to avoid falling victim to email phishing is to review the sender's email address before sending a reply.
