Next week is the PRSSA National Conference in Washington DC. The past two years I’ve enjoyed going to the conference with Northern Michigan University’s chapter of PRSSA. I always walked away with more knowledge of niches in PR (that I often over looked), an inspired feeling to hit the ground running in our chapter and in working on my career.
Sadly, this year I won’t be attending. Swinging a trip like that on a recent grad’s budget just doesn’t make much sense. The bright side is that I’m still in close contact with many of my PRSSA friends at Northern. Lizzie Corser, a senior at NMU, will be giving me daily updates that I will then post here. She will inform us on the type of lectures she attended and the key points they focused on. As well as giving us a play by play on who’s in attendance and trends in PRSSA this year.
I look forward to hearing from Lizzie and have to admit I’m a little on the jealous side that I won’t be with the Northern gang this year.
Stay tuned for Friday’s blog about preparing for conferences / business trips.
