At the University of Kentucky's chapter of PRSSA, we provide members with opportunities to enhance their education, broaden their network and launch their career.

ENHANCE YOUR EDUCATION

 -We host monthly meetings with local professionals, who give members insider's tips and advice on how things really work in the PR world. We bring in speakers with a range of PR experiences from sports PR to event planning to international PR.

-Every month we tour local and regional companies and agencies to learn about PR operations, specifically related to each individual company or agency. Some favorite past tours include Cornett, Keeneland and the Cincinnati Reds.

BROADEN YOUR NETWORK

-UK PRSSA is sponsored by the Thoroughbred Chapter of PRSA, which connects us with local PR professionals. This PRSA/PRSSA relationship gives members access to PRSA's monthly luncheons and other great networking opportunities.

-We try to send at least one representative from our chapter to every national event from the National Conference each October to the National Assembly in the spring to the Leadership Rally in June. All these national events are great opportunities to network with current PR students and professionals across the country.

LAUNCH YOUR CAREER

-When employers email us with internship or job opportunities, we email those opportunities out to our members.

-Oftentimes we pick topics and tours that help our members make lasting connections and put their best foot forward when it's finally time to start their career.
