PRSSA’s eight executive board members are gearing up to Rethink, Rebuild and Renew at the PRSSA 2015 National Conference this weekend in Atlanta, Georgia. They will spend the weekend networking with agency and corporate communications leaders, as well as other PRSSA members nationwide.

Chapter and professional development sessions will give insight into portfolio and resume-building tips, discussion on crisis communication, and industries including fashion, sports and political public relations.

Keynote Address presenters and panelists – Scott Williamson of Coca-Cola, Patrick Ford of Burson-Marsteller, Ellen East of Time Warner Cable and Kevin Saghy of the Chicago Cubs – will give conference attendees the chance to learn from some of the best industry professionals.

An awards ceremony and dinner on Monday evening will recognize chapters for their outstanding work in public relations at their respective schools. This year, the Lawrence G. Foster chapter applied for the Chapter Newsletter, Chapter Website and Regional Conference awards.

As the Lawrence G. Foster chapter’s first time traveling to Atlanta together, the executive board is thrilled to experience the lively entertainment-filled city and take advantage of the many learning opportunities for career success.
