A Letter from the President | September 2022

From the President’s Desk
A message from Wendy J. Roundtree, APR

More than 70 years ago, PRSA developed its first official code of ethics.

The Code not only serves as a guide for ethical practices but reminds us that we have an obligation to the pursuit of excellence. And while we recognize Ethics Month in September, our duty to maintain the highest professional standard is a critical part of what we do and say each day.

This month, I encourage you to take advantage of the many ethics resources available: engage in the “Ethics in Communication” Community on MyPRSA, email beps@prsa.org to get involved or tune in to the many webinars offered by PRSA National.

**Virtual** Thursday, Sept. 15: Beyond Translation: Transcreating Stories for Multicultural Audiences When developing a multicultural marketing strategy, it is important to have content properly adapted to the language being used for your target markets. But to create meaningful connections, communicators must take it a step further and transcreate content that won’t get lost in translation.
