Adviser Training

PRSSA offers a training session for advisers each year at its National Conference. The session is hosted by the National Faculty and Professional Advisers. You can review what attendees learned last year by downloading the session notes (PDF).

When you need someone to share an idea with or to discuss a challenge, you can connect with other Chapter leaders through the Faculty Adviser and Professional Adviser Google Group and through PRSSA social media. In addition, the National Committee members are here to support you and PRSSA Headquarters is happy to field questions.
