Calling all independent PR practitioners (Note: post by J.W. Arnold, APR, Fellow PRSA):
Join PRSA Broward on Friday, Sept. 30 at 12:30 p.m. at Carlucci’s Italian Restaurant, Cypress Creek Station (NW corner of Andrews & Cypress Creek, just off I-95), 6351 N. Andrews Ave. in Fort Lauderdale, just across from Hooters. They have lunch specials, small and larger pizzas, salads and pastas and it’s not too packed for lunch, usually. Last time up north for a couple of months.
The topic will be “Billing and Rates.” As the chair of PRSA’s Independent Practitioners Alliance, the question I hear the most is “How much should I charge?” Between now and the lunch, I encourage you to take our 2016 Billing / Rates Survey. It’s open to ALL independent practitioners. It’s easy and only takes 10 minutes at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/indierates2016. By Sept. 30, I should have some preliminary results I can share with you.
Hope to see everyone next week!
