Kicking off the New Year with Great Programming

Rich Donley, APR

We’ve had a great start to the year and have even more networking, programming, professional development, awards and mixers planned for the year. Check out our newsletter, blog, website and social channels for all the details.

The momentum continued at our well-attended February 6 program, “Strategic Communications on a Shoestring Budget,” which was in partnership with FPRA Orlando Area Chapter and in celebration of AD X Orlando – The Intersection of Business and Creativity. It featured moderator Eric Gray, executive director, United Against Poverty Orlando; Erika Spencer, mission storyteller, Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida; and Joe Culotta, director of communications, American Cancer Society. Attendees learned that regardless of budgets and staff size that success is still possible through storytelling, and they walked away with tips on how to cultivate and cost-effectively share those stories. 

Mark your calendars for our upcoming programs:

  • March 19, “A Conversation about Corporate Social Responsibility” with Wyndham Destinations
  • April 16, with the Orlando Economic Partnership about its “You Don’t Know the Half of It” campaign to attract more businesses to Orlando
  • May 21, “Reshaping the Future of Your Brand” with Children’s Home Society of Florida addressing lessons learned, including crisis communications around human trafficking and ethics in communicating about children’s welfare issues.
