Ohio University PRSSA Chapter to host Regional Conference
The Hugh M. Culbertson chapter of the Public Relations Student Society of America is hosting one of the country’s ten regional conferences at Ohio University on March 16. The conference, titled "Beyond the Basics," will have attendees from six states, speakers from some of the nation’s top agencies and an Opportunities Fair for students interesting in networking, internships and job opportunities.
This is the first time in more than five years that any PRSSA conference has been held at Ohio University, let alone a regional conference. The team had to submit a conference proposal in the summer of 2012, go through an interview process and send representatives to PRSSA National Conference in San Francisco last fall.
"We are so excited to host this conference," said Allison Jordan, the chapter’s president. "It is a great opportunity for our members, our chapter and our university. So many established professionals will be right here on campus to see all the hard work and talent Scripps has to offer."
The event’s keynote speaker is Ben Lincoln, Writing Director at GolinHarris in Chicago. Current PRSSA National President Lauren Gray will also be in attendance. Additionally, many JSchool alumni will come back to represent their companies and network with students.
Registration is open to all, and is $20 for PRSSA members or $25 for non-members. Those interested can register here. For more information, follow @PRSSARCBeyond, "like" Scripps PRSSA on Facebook and check out the conference’s website.
