Apply for a position on our board!

We are actively seeking two new PR professionals to join the 2018 PRSA Dayton Chapter Board. Above and beyond the requirements of the job, board members are expected to attend monthly leadership meetings.

 

The two open positions include:

  • Treasurer: Responsible for all accounting needs coming in and out of the Chapter. Serves as a member of the executive board. Typically serves a two-year commitment, with commitment renewed each year.

  • Programming Co-Chair: One of two chairs responsible for planning and executing all events for the general membership. Commitment will be renewed each year.

If you are interested in one or both openings, read on to learn more from those currently serving in the position.

 

Kim Balio Quill, 2017 Treasurer

  1. What did you like about your 2017 position?

    I liked that I was able to work with a variety of board positions and vendors. You are involved in discussions for pricing for events, follow up with vendors to make sure all payments are made, and work with other organizations when we have joint events. I really liked the amount of communication I got to do in a role that you wouldn’t think has much of that!

  2. What did you dislike about your 2017 position?

    The most challenging part was tracking down tax and other financial forms and working in an area that is totally out of my realm of expertise. I did a lot of Googling and digging on the PRSA website!

  3. How did your position help you in your everyday PR career?

    This role is extremely detail oriented and takes a lot of organization, and I think I’ve enhanced those skills in my everyday job. I also feel like I have a much better handle on creating and managing a budget. And I know a lot more about non-profit tax forms and filings!

 

Linda Dininger, 2017 Co-Programming Chair

  1. What did you like about your 2017 position?

    It incorporated my love for planning events. Plus it was fun to do some research on who might be a good speaker or where might be a fun new place to host an event.

  2. What did you dislike about your 2017 position?

    The most challenging thing was working around my maternity leave, honestly. I was trying to plan events so far in advance (which also appealed to the planner side of me), but many folks (some venues and some speakers) didn’t want to nail down details so early on. So it was a matter of keeping track of who you talked to, about what, and when you need to follow up with them again. (i.e., my to-do list never got smaller)

  3. How did your position help you in your everyday PR career?

    While it may not have immediately helped my PR career, it did help me connect with new people and learn the venue options in the city, especially as a Dayton transplant.

 

Please contact Erin Prokes, President-Elect (erin.prokes@caresource.com) if you are interested or have questions. The desired position(s) should also be noted. This opportunity is open to all current PRSA members.
