    Master Practitioners' Conversation with T.R. Reid: "Terrific high-level learning and interaction"

    The inaugural meeting last month of PRSA Colorado’s new Master Practitioners group was a resounding success according to the public relations practitioners who were there.

    The program featured long-time journalist, author, lecturer and film maker T.R. Reid, who talked about the efforts by ColoradoCareYes to get a proposal on the November ballot to create what would be the nation’s first single-payer healthcare system.

    Here’s what some of those who were there had to say:

    • “It was one of THE BEST programs I have attended with PRSA. It paid for the cost of the dues in one night.” – Jane Dvorak
    • “. . . terrific high-level learning and interaction with the presenters and my colleagues. Exactly the kind of programming I like to see from PRSA for those of us with a few years of experience.” – Lisa Cutter
    • “It was invigorating to be in a room full of knowledgeable minds tackling an exciting initiative that has a positive impact on the Colorado community.” – Gina Cannon
    • “. . . a rare opportunity to spend time and match wits with professionals at the peak of their careers, wisdom and experience. There are few if any other forums for this kind of interaction and continued development.” – Amy Johnson
    • “It was nice to share a thoughtful, high-level discussion with respected peers and colleagues about a topic that is so important to so many people.” – Jon Pushkin
    • “It was a real case study about an important local issue and a good opportunity to kick around ideas with fellow professionals.” – Mark Roberts
    • “I have been a member of PRSA for several years and this was one of my all-time favorite events. The small group setting allowed us to connect with the presenters and other PRSA members. The discussion was meaningful and engaging.” – Maggie Frasure

    Our next program promises to be even better. The world of media measurement has been turned on its head in recent years. And there’s no one in the world who knows more about that than Debi Parcheta of Blue Marble Enterprises. See the accompanying article for a description of what we’ll be discussing.

    Attendance is limited to 25 people.  PRSA members $25, nonmembers $50. 6-8 p.m. March 31, Blue Bonnet Café, 457 South Broadway. We’ll provide the conversation (with your help). You pay for your own food and drinks. Doors open at 5:30. Place your order by 6 to take advantage of happy hour prices. Register here.

    One final note: A big thank you to Sharon Linhart of LinhartPR, who donated the space and refreshments for our inaugural event. Thank you for your support, Sharon. And for adding to the success of the evening.
