The First #PRStudChat Tweetup
This must be the week of great PR announcements. Here is another special announcement about our very first #PRStudChat Tweetup. I’m happy to announcement that #PRStudchat is hosting a casual/informal event on Wednesday, March 10th at Gary Vaynerchuk’s (@garyvee) Wine Library (@winelibrary) in Springfield, New Jersey from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.
We started talking about our first #PRStudChat Tweetup when we heard that Mikinzie Stuart (@mikinizie) was visiting the area. She’s coming to New York/New Jersey as a part of a college assignment to shadow a professional (me). In honor of her visit to the east coast and also because it’s time for our other graduating PR students to get out there and meet professionals, we thought that the Wine Library would be a perfect networking opportunity. So whether you are a student interested in learning more about the PR environment directly from professionals, or you’re a PR pro interested in making more connections in the NY/NJ community, we have a fun, friendly #PRStudChat event organized for you.
I hope you will join me, Valerie Simon (@valeriesimon) and other colleagues in the PR community for a wine tasting and an evening of networking with your PR friends. Please note that Gary won’t be able to be there on 3/10, but you are welcome to visit the Wine Library on Saturday 3/27 to meet him in person for a special book signing from 1-4 pm!
See you at the #PRStudChat Tweetup!

Hi Andrew! It would be so much fun to have you at the #PRStudChat Tweetup. Can’t wait to meet you in person. Hope you can make it but, if not, we will still have to plan a get together sometime soon. Thanks.

How cool! I really wish I could be there! Hope everyone has a great time.

Hi Angela 🙂 Thank you. I wish you could be with us too. You are very much a part of this whole effort. If it wasn’t for your “Is PR Right for Me” blog series, we wouldn’t have come up with the #PRStudChat idea. If you are planning a trip to the NY/NJ area, we will have a tweetup in your honor.

Looking forward to seeing you.

I really want to make it to this, I’d be coming from NYC. Looking for people to travel with. 🙂

Hi Elisabeth! I hope that you can make it on Wednesday. If you reach out to @valeriesimon on Twitter, she may be able to let you know who’s traveling in from NYC 🙂

Hi Deirdre, I haven’t participated much in the PR chats yet, but my sister (@riannam) and I (@carleemallard) will be driving up to NYC from NC tomorrow so Patrick suggested I stop by. I’m looking forward to meeting everyone!

Hi Carlee! That’s wonderful that you are stopping by the #PRstudchat tweetup on your way to NYC. I’m looking forward to meeting you too! It should be a great time. Thanks 🙂
