Programming

Each semester, PRSSA’s programming committee brings speakers that are relevant and interesting to our members as young PR professionals. We will also keep providing added value, PRSSA exclusive events with Newhouse visitors. Members can look forward to events like media relations and crisis communications workshops, a seminar on what reporters look for in a pitch, social and networking events and much more.

In the past, we’ve hosted professionals from Edelman, Ketchum, The Walt Disney  Company, The New York Yankees, General Electric, PepsiCo, The Food Network, Startbucks, Ogilvy, W2O Group, MWW, McDonald’s, EMA and many more!

National Conference

Each year, hundreds of PRSSA members from all chapters gather in one city for National Conference. As the Society’s largest and most popular event, National Conference offers members the opportunity to network, learn, and develop their professional skills with students from around the country. The Ehling chapter is proud to send a group of students every year. The conference is usually held in mid-October.
