A check-in with Susanne Martin

Kia ora koutou,

Thank you to all those members who have reached out to welcome me to PRINZ during my first month.  You’ve been very kind and supportive – it is appreciated.

It has certainly been a busy month with the the team at head office working to lock down plans for the remainder of this year and laying down the foundations for our calendar and membership offierings for 2023.

The PRINZ Board and team recently held a Strategy Day reviewing the PRINZ strategy and benchmarking our activities that underpin that strategy to ensure they were supportive of the short and long term objectives.  I look forward to sharing some of those initiatives with you over the coming months.

Over the next month our APR candidates will be nearing their final exams and I want to take this opportunity to wish them all well as they continue their accreditation journey.

We also have a full calendar of courses, fascinating webinars and regional catch ups coming in the month of October so please log onto our website for full details and continue your ongoing learning journey or connect with like minded PR and comms practitioners.

Dont forget that many of these events are free to members so if your membership has expired now is as good a time as any to renew so you can enjoy the full benefit for your membership.  Just jump onto our website and the instructions are self explanatory to walk you through the process. However if you get stuck dont hesitate to reach out to our super responsive and helpful team at HO who will be happy to assist you.

I really look forward to meeting many of you as I visit with our regional committees around Aotearoa in the coming months but in the meantime dont hesitate to contact me directly with suggestions, queries, stories to share, anything at all really. 

Until we do connect,
