Professional development conference set for September 30

The Southwest Missouri Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) is excited to host the upcoming 6th Annual 2010 Professional Development Conference, September 30, 2010, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., at the Springfield Chamber of Commerce.

Your PRSA committee is making preparations to engage you in relevant, lively professional development again this year. It is our intention to give you a power-packed day at last year’s prices, and we’ll offer the early bird registration discount again. Registration will soon be available online at our web site.

Keynote speakers this year are Dr. Joseph Trahan, APR Fellow, who will energize you with the nuts and bolts on bringing positive PR to your organization, by teaching company spokespersons how to remain focused and proactive. Keynote Josh Stoffregen will tell his real-life story of moving global PR forward in the “traditional” financial corporate structure of Prudential. Find out what breakthroughs in the digital realm played a part in his advancement. Plus, we’re working on a panel centered on this question: If we were hiring today, or being hired, what would we bring to the table?

Please attend! The conversation, networking and learning opportunities will be worth your investment. Be sure to watch for updates at http://www.swprsa.org/. Invite clients and colleagues to this one.
