Since 1990, Counselors’ Network (CN) has served as a forum for senior-level public relations practitioners to discuss their craft and learn from one another.
Benefits of CN membership include:
Periodically, members of the Counselors’ Network are invited to attend special events that are exclusive to Network members. These events are designed to provide members with enriching professional development opportunities and experiences.
2019 CN Winter Symposium
A Dynamic Two-Day Conference
This annual event provides senior-level, professional development designed to encourage productive idea sharing and stimulating dialogue. The 2019 CN Winter Symposium was held January 24-26. This year’s Symposium attendees enjoyed an experiential learning component.
The 2020 CN Winter Symposium dates will be announced later this year.
Until you experience the CN Winter Symposium, it is hard to explain the level of personal and professional growth that takes place in two days. It is a combination of incredible experiences — behind-the-scenes tours, hands-on exposure, discussions with top leaders — and networking with the sharpest PR professionals in the state. If I was only allowed one professional growth opportunity this year, this is the one I would pick because every time I leave knowing that it is the best investment my company can make in me.
