The PRSA Idaho Chapter has an event coming up on Wednesday, April 22nd: PR/Communications Experience and Education — How to Lead in a PR, PIO or Communications Role Without Them. From the PRSA Idaho website:
Several PR practitioners, communicators and PIOs have landed in their jobs without previous public relations experience or formal training. If you are one of them and would like to get tips on how to become more confident and effective as a PR practitioner or PIO, this will prove to be a valuable meeting for you. During this session, we will hear from a number of communications professionals who can address this topic. Then, we’ll open it up for discussion.
