Another Great Year


Krista Riggs, President

What an exciting year we enjoyed with PRA! The May luncheon is always a wonderful way to end our season by recognizing members outstanding work. Congratulations to all award recipients: Friends of Peoria Public Library, Easter Seals Peoria-Bloomington and the City of East Peoria! May is also when we vote in the new Executive Board for the upcoming year. Over the last few years the Executive Board has worked hard to revamp PRA and the new board is just as committed to continuing this exciting phase.

While we won't host luncheons during the summer months, now is the time to renew your membership. This ensures you will receive all communications throughout the summer, are included in on the luncheon invitations when that time comes and makes for a much easier check in process at the September meeting. The membership form can be found on our website and mailed to the P.O. Box listed. We look forward to seeing you in September!

Most of you know me, but as the new President I was asked to provide a small bio for members who don't. I joined PRA in January 2011 and have enjoyed co-charing the position of VP of Programming with Greg Shaheen over the last two years. I graduated with a bachelor's degree from SIU Carbondale and moved to Peoria to begin my career in Marketing. Over the last six years I worked as the Director of Marketing in the hospitality industry and am excited to have the recent opportunity to work from home full time building my business with ItWorks! Global.

I hope all of you enjoy the summer months and I look forward to seeing you in September.
