Looking to keep learning about global mobility, improving your skills, making business contacts all in a nice and chill environment? Believe it or not, it’s possible! PSRC understands that business, learning and fun are not fought with each other. So you can learn and discuss while having a great time.
That’s why, they invite you to their next event: “PSRC Sound-Side Summer Social”. It’s perfect whether you are a mobility expert, employee or boss. There’s always something new you can learn, right?
Puget Sound Relocation Council PSRC (PSRC) is a non-profit organization centered around the relocation and mobility industry. PSRC is composed of relocation and Human Resources professionals, who all are “committed to education, collaboration and the exchange of ideas”. In fact, they divide their goals in three categories: learn, share and care.
They have a long history that backs up their work. They were founded in 1991 and ever since they’ve had their principles very clear, which keep being the same principles today. Those have led them to the goals they have now.
To achieve those goals, they host different relocation and mobility events throughout the year with various topics. They also do charity to help their community. For example, in PSRC 2022 charities they supported iUrban Teen and Northwest Harvest. They had fundraising events to help these important causes.
You can be a part of this organization by becoming a member. There are benefits to that. You’ll get to attend different kinds of events, even conference calls if you’re a corporate member.
And you’ll get registration discounts for those events. Plus, you’ll have the chance of earning CRP and GMS credits. You’ll also get the benefit of sharing ideas with fellow professionals, as they encourage networking.
There are two membership levels. The Corporate Member is for free and with an unlimited subscription period. It’s for employees of a company that does “the internal relocation function for purposes of transferring their company’s employees”.
There’s also the Supplier Member, which costs $100 USD dollars and lasts one year. This is for people that provide “relocation products and/or services to the corporate relocation industry”.
You can also be a sponsor. There are different sponsorship packages. The “Mt. Rainier / Tahoma” costs $1,500 USD dollars. The “Mt. Adams / Klickitat” costs $1,000 USD dollars, and the “Mt. Baker / Kulshan” has a cost of $500 USD dollars.
Each one of these have different benefits for you. Some benefits they share are to have your logo on their website and during their events. As well as to recognize you as a sponsor on their social media channels.
You’ll also get a certain amount of “dedicated social media posts annually”. The number of posts for this last benefit varies depending on which sponsorship package you have; nonetheless it’s very helpful.
