Calling All Mentors and Mentees!

We are gearing up to launch the 2017 mentorship program, which pairs PR and communications professionals in the first five years of their career with seasoned PR professionals with at least 10 years of experience. Mentors assist mentees in developing professional skills and passing along valuable knowledge to aid in the advancement of a mentees career.

Mentors meet with mentees throughout the year to discuss the PR profession and answer any questions mentees may have about the direction of their career. If you’re a PR professional with at least 10 years of experience and want to share your knowledge of the communications industry with a rising PR professional, or if you are a young professional in the first five years of your career looking for a trusted mentor to answer your tough career questions, this program is for you.

If you’re interested in participating as a mentor or mentee in the 2017 Mentorship Program, please email Aisha Fletcher and Whitney Strittmatter at fletcher.aisha@gmail.com and whitstritt@gmail.com with your name, company, industry, number of years of experience and expertise/interests by December 31st.


 

Partner Spotlight


Melissa Flynn, APR
Melissa Flynn Public Relations & Marketing, 2017 PRSA Dallas President

1. Who (or what) introduced you to PRSA Dallas and how long have you been a part of the chapter? I'm actually a Detroit native (Go Blue!), and joined the PRSA Detroit chapter back in 1998. It's hard to believe I've been a member for nearly 20 years! Then again, it's hard to imagine PRSA and the community it has become for me not being part of my life.

2. What is one piece of advice you would give new PRSA Dallas members and prospective members?
Always do more than what's expected of you - don't wait to see if someone needs something to be done. Do it. Over-deliver. Oh, and be a sponge. Read everything you can get your hands on.

3. Any hobbies or quirks to confess?
My husband and I love to spend time with our kids - while they still want to be around us! For mental and physical health, I run and am a bit obsessed with FlyWheel (spinning) at the wee hours of the morning. My quirks? I'm an anti-clutter freak. My family knows stuff all over the counters and on the floors make me crazy! That darn Type-A PR personality.

4. What is on your coffee table?
Too many remotes for TVs and other technology I barely use. Always several books. Water...lots of water. (I should float.)

5. What is your favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant?
It's not really a hole-in-the-wall, but it's easy to miss, but fantastic: Table 13 in Addison. Amazing food. Rat Pack-esque atmosphere and jazz music. We love it.
