Quality Time with PR Minds Volunteer Registration: Giving Back to San Diego’s Nonprofit Community

The San Diego/Imperial County chapter of PRSA is hosting our annual Quality Time with PR Minds event at 4:45 p.m. on Wednesday, September 13 at the Better Business Bureau Ignite Center.

This event gives PR/communications professionals an opportunity to volunteer their time and talents to help San Diego-area nonprofits reach their communications goals or tackle strategic challenges. PRSA members at all levels of experience and backgrounds are welcome. Whether you have just a few years of experience or are a seasoned professional, nonprofits can benefit from your bright ideas and experience.

Year after year, PRSA SD/IC hears from participants that this is their favorite event of the year because they’re able to use their expertise to help raise awareness for the great work happening in the San Diego nonprofit community. We also hear that PRSA professionals enjoy brainstorming with other members they don’t get to work with work with on a day-to-day basis.

Register today and stay tuned for more information about the nonprofit organizations participating in this year’s event.

Full program:

4:45 p.m. – 5:15 p.m. — Check-in, Networking and Dinner

5:15 p.m. — Welcome Comments and Introductions by Chapter President

5:30 – 7 p.m. — Small Group Sessions with Pros and Nonprofits

This is a wonderful and rewarding way to personally give back to those in need by sharing your time and talents. Many of our volunteers share that it’s one of their favorite events that we do as a Chapter. We really need your support!

Note: Our goal is to recruit 40 Chapter members so that each nonprofit benefits from the feedback of two pros, which also makes the conversations and brainstorming more lively.
