Guest Blog from Southwest Florida Chapter of FPRA President, Trish Robertson

When I think about the value of FPRA and ask myself “what’s in it for me?” my number one thought is experience. Working in public relations field isn’t monotonous – it’s different every single day. Attending workshops, meeting local professionals and taking on leadership roles have provided me with the experiences I need to be a better employee. In public relations, you have to be prepared to make quick decisions and just when you think you’ve gotten the hang of something new, it changes. Being an FPRA member helps us prepare of the unexpected and obtain the experience we need to be better PR professionals.
