Making Entering Cleveland PR More Inclusive


By Rachel Kerstetter, New Pros Chair, PRSA Cleveland

We’ve changed the name of the group that you previously knew as the YoungPRos. Many enter into the PR industry from other fields, not necessarily straight out of school and we want to include everyone new in the field. Transitioning into PR or communication from journalism, marketing, underwater basket weaving? Well then, you’re welcome here!

The Greater Cleveland PRSA New Pros group is open to anyone with seven or fewer years of experience in public relations. You’re welcome to join our mailing list, events and LinkedIn group regardless of whether you’re a PRSA member yet or not. Our mission is to provide opportunities for professional growth while building a strong network of peers.

Want to get involved with the New Pros? Contact me to be added to the mailing list and join the conversation on LinkedIn. Just as the YoungPRos welcomed the young-at-heart pros, we want to continue to learn from those of you who have more experience than us. Even if you’ve been in PR for more than seven years, please feel free to join us at events and online.

Rachel Kerstetter is the VP of Membership for PRSA Greater Cleveland and chairs the New Pros and Student Day committees. She is the Public Relations Architect at Sonnhalter, the leading B2T marketing communications firm.
