cPRsips is a new event series that aims to bring local PR practitioners together for casual and genuine conversation amongst peers, focused on a current issue or hot topic. Events have a limited number of seats, with a drink included in your $15 ticket ($20 for non-members).

The hot topic for May is: Money laundering: GR & PR insights from the real estate industry

“Dirty money” and “white collar crime.” Turn on your radio, open up your news app or watch the 5 o’clock news on T.V. these days and you’ll hear these words paired with the latest stories about money laundering.

A recent report says an estimated $5.3 billion of laundered money into B.C.’s real estate market last year hiked up housing prices by 5%. Amidst multiple reports on the issue and political calls for a public inquiry, what are the government relations and public relations perspectives behind the scenes in the real estate industry?

How is the association that focuses on provincial issues that impact real estate developing its government relations & communications strategies to respond to the ongoing public and media dialogue on this issue? What tools and tactics are being deployed to separate fact from fiction and truth from spin?

The BC Real Estate Association (BCREA)’s Vice President of Government Relations Trevor Hargreaves and Communications Manager April Van Ert will be our special guests as we dive into this month’s hot topic.

There are many networking-style events for PR professionals in Vancouver. This isn’t one of them. Feel free to swap business cards, but this event prioritizes dialogue over job seeking, recruiting and brand promotion. After attending cPRsips, we hope you’ll walk away feeling informed, inspired and ready to apply new learnings to your current and future public relations practice.

Tickets are issued on a first come, first served basis. Come have a few sips, learn a thing or two, and make a few new professional PR friends in the process.
