The Florida Public Relations Association’s 73rd Annual Conference kicks off this Sunday, Aug. 7 in Naples, Fla. The four-day conference will feature speakers with considerable public relations experience and insight drawn from business, education, politics and journalism.
Several hundred of you have already registered for the conference and we look forward to seeing you. We realize, however, that not every member of FPRA is able to attend. Organizational budgets, time constraints, work and personal commitments are just a few reasons why you may not be able to attend this year’s conference. But don’t let that keep you from participating!
As a member and non-member benefit, FPRA will again offer live blogging of its conference at http://www.fpra.org.
Here is what you can expect from this blog:
Overviews and notes from the general and breakout sessions. We’re going to do our best to cover each session to bring you the latest trends and best practices in public relations.
Photos will be included in the blog posts, but the majority of the photos will be found on our Flickr photostream.
We plan to post audio/video interviews with conference attendees to get their perspective on the various speakers and conference activities.
All blog posts will include the ability for you to comment. We encourage members to continue the discussions from the sessions online. We’ll even ask the presenters to visit the comments and respond as needed.
If you are attending and Tweeting from the conference, we ask you to use hashtag #fpra11. If you are following the conference on Twitter, simply create a search column for #fpra11 to get the latest news and updates.
In closing, we’d like to introduce to you this year’s conference blog team.
So, plan to join us at the FPRA Annual Conference on Aug. 7-10, either in person or online!
