It’s the perfect time to maximize your PR efforts and to look ahead to the future. You won’t want to miss a half-day of engaging sessions with some of the state’s most creative and strategic storytellers and PR professionals!
2020 is the year we all want to put behind us. The year that upended everything we knew and made us reevaluate how and why we did things we did. With the only constant that was uncertainty and stress, we have persevered together. We continued to provide the public relations expertise that we are known for.
Now that we are almost on the other side, we can reflect and more importantly, focus on the road ahead, hone our skills, add new tips and tricks, and discuss the rapidly changing landscape of digital media.
