"I first joined PRSA Silicon Valley when I moved to San Francisco from Alabama. I didn't really know anyone on the West coast and needed to build my network. Now, 7 years later, I attribute much of my success to PRSA and the mentors I met through the organization."
Scott Thornburg, APR
GLOBAL COMMS LEAD, SOJERN
"I really enjoy telling other PR professionals about what PRSA-SV means to me."
PRESIDENT AND FOUNDER,
“Being a member of PRSA not only helps me expand my communication skills but extends my professional network allowing me to work with experts from all types of industries. I find value not only in the programs and educational sessions the organization provides but also the one to one connections I am able to tap into for mentorship and advice.”
DIRECTOR, INFLUENCER RELATIONS & CORPORATE COMMUNICATIONS, EARLY WARNING
"My last two interviews were from relationships I built through my participation with the Silicon Valley chapter. Many senior level practitioners are involved and looking to connect via mentorship and opportunities."
"Joining the PRSA Silicon Valley chapter started as a practical decision when I first moved to the Bay Area. All these years later, it's become an important part of my professional and personal life. It's vibrant community that I'm thankful to be a part of."
