Help us support professional development locally

A few of us attended the PRSA Midwest District conference in Omaha this past July. We were all impressed by the networking opportunities, the engaging presenters and the great location. (Trust me - if you haven't been to Omaha - go! It's a great city.)

We're hosting next year's conference and I'm looking forward to exceeding everyone's expectations. But before the large conference next summer we have our annual professional development conference coming up on Sept. 24.  We always strive to put together a conference that provide great learning opportunities. 

Our theme this year is "What's Trending Now?"  We have terrific talent lined up including Online Marketing Giant CEO Brett Curry and Boundless Creative Owner Jen Welton talking about the latest trends in social media.  Missouri State University professor Dr. Randy Dillon, talking about different ways to communicate with different generations. 

As part of this conference we're looking for a few businesses and organizations interested in promoting their services to our group of PR pros; folks  in the position to use their products.

Become a sponsor and help support local professional development.  As a sponsor, we'll make sure we mention you often in email communication, on our website, on social media posts and at the conference.   Contact Professional Development Conference Chair Angela Eden at 417.895.7641 or email her at if you would like to learn more.
