Board members chosen, bylaws being written, lunch meetings planned.

May 10, 2010

That’s right, marketing and public relations professionals and small business owners in DeKalb County, the DeKalb County Society for Marketing & Public Relations — or DCSMPR — is rapidly coming into reality and you have the chance to become a part of our area’s newest and most dynamic professional organization.

We’re rapidly at work, getting the organization up and running and here are just a few highlights to expect in the coming weeks:

  • Our new web site,, will be launched by the end of this week with helpful marketing and PR articles, information on how to join the Society, member benefits and a closer glimpse at future programs and offerings.
  • We’re rapidly planning our first Lunch & Learn which will take place at a local restaurant in DeKalb or Sycamore. Attendance is open to all marketing and PR professionals — you do not need to be a member to attend our initial Lunch & Learns — and our first event is scheduled for June. Watch for more details.
  • For those of you are social networkers — and, really, that should be all of you, we have a Facebook Group and Twitter account set up, with frequent posts of marketing tips and advice, links to helpful articles, commentary on marketing & PR news and other interesting facts, figures and features.
  • We’re looking for your input for an educational conference we’re planning for later in the year. Soon, you’ll be able to give us your opinions and guidance via a new online survey.
  • We’re reaching out to the marketing students and faculty at Northern Illinois University, hoping to gain students and staff as members and help them to work with local businesses on case studies as well as interns for the coming year.

It’s an exciting time for the DCSMPR. Why not become a part of DeKalb County’s newest professional organization, designed specifically for marketing and public relations professionals — and business owners in need of marketing assistance, education and guidance.
