District Leadership Rally a Tremendous Success

Chapter leaders attending the rally include (L-) Missy Burchart, Alabama; Tony Arnold, North Carolina; and Elizabeth McMillan, Georgia chapter.

Incoming PRSA chapter officers and committee chairs from throughout the Southeast gathered in Charlotte, N.C., for the 2012 PRSA SE District Leadership Rally, held Nov. 2. Keynote sessions and breakout training sessions were highlights of the day, and participants reported they especially enjoyed the networking opportunities. The tradition of the district leadership rally was initiated, or reinitiated, two years ago in Atlanta, and  the 2011 was held in Birmingham. The leadership rally is especially for incoming chapter leaders, not to be confused with the district conference, which is intended for all members in the district. The location of next year’s leadership rally has not yet been announced. The rally is held late in the calendar year so local chapters will have their slate of officers in place for the next calendar year.
