As one of our FPRA members, you have a voice. A strong, clear and respected voice. CEOs, political leaders and community figures look to you as a trusted confidant for wisdom and guidance. Before launching a program or initiative they look to you and ask, “What should I do?”
Our profession is all about action. We research, plan and implement campaigns that bridge the gap between those who need and those who have. We help the public understand what it needs to know when it needs to know it. Our words influence policy, economies and social movements. Our words, our prose, are our actions.
Our professional world is changing constantly. Sitting passively on the sidelines is not an option. As we continue to hone our craft, we owe it to ourselves, our peers and our community to invest our profession. For us to be the change we want to see in the world, we must do more than simply write words on a page. For ourselves, for our employers, for our association and for our industry, we must take action. We must invest in our energy, time and passion into our community of leaders. Whether it’s joining a committee, leading a program, seeking out accreditation or certification, recruiting new student or professional members or simply sharing your feedback, we need your actions!
We must be louder than words.
