Monthly Luncheons

The Thoroughbred Chapter PRSA holds monthly luncheons which provide valuable networking opportunities and keep our members up-to-date on the latest public relations tools, trends and topics. We bring in a variety of local, regional and national speakers who are well-versed on the issues that are of the greatest interest to our chapter members, all for the purpose of providing a local source for practical professional development.  We also enjoy collaborating with our peers from other professional organizations through joint luncheons and networking events throughout the year.
