With much sadness, CPRS says goodbye to Beverly Reynolds, APR LM, long-standing member of CPRS Calgary, who passed away on Jan. 11.
Beverly became a life member of CPRS in 2003 after nearly 30 years of service, since becoming the second woman ever to join the Society in 1974. She was considered a trailblazer and spent 40 years counselling clients and mentoring young professionals, many of whom became her close friends. Her memory will live on in the hearts of all who knew her.
Please take a moment to pause and remember Beverly and her many accomplishments here.

As the most-watched presidential transition in modern U.S. history took place recently, we see much more than the predictable clash of partisan loyalties and ideologies; we are witnessing a collision of values that will influence the future of not just the United States, but also the world.
This is not to suggest that the whole world revolves around U.S. politics, nor to deny that global influence is increasingly multipolar. But as the planet's largest economic, military and cultural power, America's self-definition and direction implicates all of us.
The Holmes Report
A "global implosion" of trust, driven by a loss of faith in the overall system, is fuelling rising levels of populism across the world, reveals Edelman's 2017 Trust Barometer.
The 17th edition of the study, which polled 33,000 respondents around the world, finds the largest ever drop in trust across government, business, media and NGOs.
If you thrive on stress, an ultra-anxiety-ridden profession like firefighter or police officer might be a good line of work for — but so might newspaper reporter, broadcaster or, yes, PR executive, says a new Job Stress report from CareerCast. Your life might not be on the line in those media and comms professions, but 21st-century developments like the proliferation of social media as a news-consumption forum — and the resulting client demands and expectations — have turned our livelihoods into bona fide pressure cookers.
The presidential farewell address used to be a big deal. George Washington started the trend in 1796. For many decades it was considered the most famous speech in American history. Students had to read it and memorize portions from it, until another speech displaced it — The Gettysburg Address.
