What do you like best about working at PRSA?

What advice can you offer members to maximize the value of their membership?

A PRSA membership is like buying a waffle maker. It is a great tool, but if you don’t put the time and waffle mix in it, you don’t get waffles. Get involved with your PRSA chapter and sections. Networking with your peers is so important for your growth and career.
