PRSSA National Conference is the largest public relations conference in the country. This year it is in Indianapolis from October 21 to 25, and the registration deadline is Friday, September 16
At National Conference you are able to make valuable connections with fellow PR students and current professionals. During the conference there is the opportunity to tour renowned PR firms and PR departments in the area. Last year students toured Coca-Cola, Edelman, and Goodwill just to name a few.
The potential connections with peers, educators, and employers are seemingly infinite by attending PRSSA NC. One of the highlights of PRSSA NC is exploring a new city with your PRSSA family. Learning more about the host city, your chapter and other students from around the world is an invigorating experience.
USF PRSSA has applied for a travel grant but it cannot be secured until students have already registered for National Conference. Registration for PRSSA National members is $310, if you are not a PRSSA National member it is $345.
Students attending National Conference will stay at the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown, the block rate is $191 per night. If 4 students share a room, then it would be $191 per student for the whole 4 nights of conference.
The estimated travel cost to Indianapolis is $237 round trip.
We will discuss National Conference in more detail at our next meeting on September 1st in CIS 3012 at 6 pm.
