Philadelphia Public Relations Association 2011 kick-off event

Breaking the Ice: A speed-networking event with a twist

Philadelphia Public Relations Association members gathered last week to enjoy
cocktails, enlightening conversation, and the rip and roar of a nearby chainsaw. In the
hands of a skilled sculptor, the power tool tore through more than 600 lbs. of ice, creating
an elegant sculpture for PPRA’s 2011 kick-off event - “Breaking the Ice: A Speed-networking
event with a twist.”

Atop the rooftop deck of The Corner Bar in Center City, members squeezed as
much info as possible into 3-minute conversations for the speed-networking portion of
the evening. Many members took advantage of the very swanky bar/restaurant and
enjoyed the view overlooking the city as the sun began to set.

“I spoke with people I would never had a chance to otherwise meet.” said Beth
Archer, PPRA chairperson, “This was a great way to start off the year and I’m so excited
for the next event!”

Chris Lukach, 2011- 2012 PPRA president, welcomed the newly elected
executive board and thanked Meredith Avakian, vice president for programs, and her
team, including Lindsay Bues and Robert Johnson, social programs co-chairs, for their
hard work.
