The Canadian Public Relations Society (CPRS) – Northern Lights offers you the opportunity to connect regularly with other communications professionals, access quality professional development seminars, and keep in tune with the latest developments in your profession. Since its formation in 1999, the Northern Lights group has become one of the fastest growing member societies and now represents a network of members working throughout northern and central B.C.
Northern Lights members stay connected with current trends, hot topics and each other through a variety of networking, professional development sessions and regular updates and bulletins. Our group usually meets the third Friday of the month for a Lunch & Learn, with a speaker presenting on a relevant and timely issue. We also offer one full-day professional development session, “Building Blocks,” in April or May.
Our AGM is in May/June and we hold social networking events as often as possible!
