The Publicity Club of Chicago was set to launch a new brand logo and expanded, redesigned Web site on Monday, but a representative from the organization has just informed us the launch has been indefinitely delayed so more functionalities can be added.
When it does launch, the new Web site will target the organization's members and non-members whose expertise and training is in media relations, public relations and marketing. The online industry newsletter "Dateline" and the career resource "Jobs In PR" remain highlights of the site, and they are prominently displayed. Other features of the redesign include simpler navigation and content aggregation, an "Insider" blog, social networking outlets and video updates on organizational activities. "The redesigned Web site better reflects the prestigious leadership position the Publicity Club of Chicago plays in the Chicago PR and communications industry," said David Bosch, PCC president. The redesigned site features creative design work and Web site development by the Gammon Group in Joliet.
