June 6-9: Food and culture series

The 20th annual June Lecture Series at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at UD in Wilmington will be held June 6-9. Titled 'June a la Carte,' this year's program focuses on great political documents, feminism, world politics and a Newark cuisine sampler.

Jamie Lawlor, president of PRSSA-UD, and Brianna Rooney, president of Temple PRSSA, crafted the idea of “PRogress in Fall 2013” as a way to listen to their members. They wanted to highlight their members’ public relations related aspirations for the fall semester and devise ways in which PRSSA can assist.

“I am eager to begin brainstorming ideas on how we can help members grow as young professionals in the public relations field,” said Lawlor. “Our members have acquired a tremendous amount of public relations knowledge from their summer internships and we want to continue to provide them with opportunities to advance throughout the semester.”

A Twitter chat most often focuses on a specific topic and uses a specific hashtag to organize a conversation. PRSSA-UD and Temple PRSSA will moderate the chat, sending out questions in each tweet, using the official hashtag, #PRogress. Participants answer the question with their own thoughts and suggestions using the hashtag. 

PRSSA-UD holds Twitter chats to give its members the chance to share ideas and build relationships through social media. PRSSA-UD recently held a co-hosted Twitter chat in January with Temple University’s PRSSA chapter that focused on PRSSA experiences. 


PRSSA-UD strives to offer its members practical, out-of-the-classroom experience in the public relations field through attending national and local PRSSA activities, networking events with local public relations professionals, trips to public relations agencies and departments, and access to a national internship and job database.
