Join the members of the Emerald Coast Public Relations Organization (ECPRO) as we kick off the new year in a new location and with a dynamic speaker. Meetings will now take place at the Greater Fort Walton Beach Chamber of Commerce, 34 Miracle Strip Pkwy SE. In addition, ECPRO is introducing a First Time Guest special of $15 for lunch. The first speaker at this new location will be Jessica Proffitt Bracken, who will speak on Pivoting with Grace: Social Media and Digital Marketing. Bracken has become well-known in the public relations field throughout the area since founding Proffitt PR in 2011. The business has been recognized as best in the region, winning Best Public Relations, Event Planning and Advertising Agency since 2011 by readers of VIP Destin Magazine, Emerald Coast Magazine and regional newspapers. Along with her numerous awards, she was highlighted in the 850 Business Magazine as one of the 40 under 40. She is a member of Business Empowered and the Walton County, Destin and Fort Walton Beach Chambers of Commerce. ECPRO meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month from 11:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. Lunch is $15 for members and first time guests, $20 for associates of members, $25 for non-members and $10 for students. If you do not want to eat but want to hear the program, the cost is $10. Guests are always welcome and should bring business cards for networking. Don’t forget door prizes and a few extra dollars for business announcements. The money from announcements and the 50/50 drawing go toward scholarships for local high school students.
