Members of the Counselors’ Network got exclusive access to speak with Dillin Keynote Speaker Melissa Agnes, President and Co-Founder of Agnes + Day about challenges CN members are faced with when dealing with a crisis.
If an organization’s leaders are reluctant to develop a crisis plan, Melissa recommends using crisis simulations as one method of gaining buy-in from leadership.
About the Counselors’ Network
FPRA’s Counselors’ Network offers senior level public relations practitioners an opportunity for professional enrichment and continuing education. Along with networking opportunities, professional development and special events, CN offers one-on-one collaboration and provides a forum for senior members to give back through mentoring and the FPRA speakers’ bureau.
CN membership is open to any FPRA member in good standing who has earned the CPRC (Certified Public Relations Counselor) credential. Additionally, members must be actively engaged in providing counseling service and have been practicing public relations for at least ten years, three of which have been in a counseling capacity.
