Investing in Professional Development

By Posted in - Professional Development on November 9th, 2010

We like when our smart friends at Start-Thinking include us in their blog posts. (Thank you!)

Last week, Josie and I attended the annual Public Relations & Marketing Seminar hosted by the North Carolina Chapter of Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). Like the other years I’ve attended, I found this to be a worthy professional development investment. For more on Clairemont’s professional development philosophy, check out this Start-Thinking post from Kristen Klucas on why and how agencies invest.

I had the pleasure of meeting the very talented Kristen when we both attended a Social IRL session with Sarah Evans… yes, investing in our professional development!

    I spent some time with the PRSSA students at both Northern Arizona University and Arizona State University these past weeks. In both sessions, the students asked about professional development, continuing education, etc. I a big advocate of PD — whether through an association like PRSA or through a college or university. We believe in it so strongly here at HMA Public Relations, that we offer up to $1,500 a year to each employee.
