PRSA Blue Ridge Service Workshop

  • Green Ridge Recreation Center - 7415 Wood Haven RD, Roanoke, VA 24019
Does your non-profit need a public relations boost? As part of our commitment to serve the community, PRSA Blue Ridge is offering a new workshop designed to help you create a custom communication strategy sure to get you the media attention you deserve!

It will consist of two parts:
1.    Twenty Tips in Twenty Minutes: Non-profits will hear from local PR experts (speakers TBD) about general best practices and tips for smaller organizations/one-man-bands. Sort of a PR 101 geared to non-profit employees who wear a lot of hats.
2.    Individual Strategy and Planning: PRSA members will work individually with non-profits, hearing their issues, answering their questions and brainstorming solutions.
To best meet the needs of the second portion of the event, we will limit participating non-profits to four. Up to three representatives from each nonprofit will be permitted to attend. 

Non-profits will apply via electronic survey, and participants will be selected based on need, issues presented and goals provided. Survey can be found here. PRSA will notify all applicants in early September to let them know if they were selected.

Application Deadline: Monday, August 28


To be considered, an organization needs to be based in Central or Southwest VA and have a designated 501© 3 nonprofit status. Organizations must not have either a public relations professional on staff or access to support from public relations contractors.
