Why You Should Attend the PRSSA 2014 National Assembly

14NationalAssemblyThe PRSSA 2014 National Assembly is an event dedicated to leadership training and Society development. The Assembly gathers each spring to also make influential, long-term decisions about the future of the Society, elect a new National Committee and review the bylaws. This year’s Assembly, March 13-16 in Charleston, S.C., is one that promises to provide an impactful experience for attendees. There’s a lot to know, but here are my top reasons why you should attend National Assembly.

Leadership Experience
National Assembly has a long-standing tradition of being the breading ground for the following year’s leaders. Develop your style and thought process as a leader throughout the Assembly, the program includes sessions on leadership discovery, leadership communication and the integrity of a leader. Attendees can also learn from those running for the PRSSA National Committee during Saturday’s election of the 2014-2015 national leaders.

Two Chief Executive Speakers
Attendees will hear from established leaders in the public relations field. Not one, but two chief executives at major agencies will share their thoughts. First, GolinHarris CEO Fred Cook will share his unconventional rise to the top during Friday’s special session. Sunday morning, Deveney Communication’s Founder and President John Deveney, ABC, APR, Fellow PRSA will deliver the keynote address. Deveney, a member of the PRNews Hall of Fame, led PR campaigns that rallied Louisiana and New Orleans tourism post-Hurricane Katrina and again after the BP oil spill.

This event at this price cannot be missed. Delegates have their hotel covered by PRSSA and their registration fee waived. Are you kidding? That’s a deal that can’t be turned down. Registration for non-delegates is only $60. When you break it down to dollars, National Assembly just adds up.

Day-of Competition
Sign up to be part of the Day-of Competition, where small teams have one hour to put together a full-scale public relations campaign for a client. The campaign is developed in a fun, fast pace, competitive environment and the winning team receives a prize!
