Every year, the marketing committee works toward creating and fulfilling fundraising events for our chapter in ways that are beneficial to our members, campus and community. With a committee consisting of 50+ members, we all strive to represent our chapter by hosting events such as headshot, food and skill improvement fundraisers. As a part of this committee, each member will gain valuable experience in event planning, promotion and execution and will have the opportunity to improve creative, marketing and communication skills.

As a part of the publications committee, your job is simple. Each committee member will write blog posts of 250-500 words in length on any topic relating to public relations. Members create their own deadlines, so they can write around their schedules. These submissions will be edited and featured on the UA PRSSA blog. In addition, committee members have the option to attend brainstorming sessions, as well as Write Nite, once every month. Members may create their own topics or take advantage of a topic bank to help with their subject choice and creative direction.
If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Patton.
