Regional Conferences

PRSSA Chapters host a variety of Regional Conferences, events endorsed by PRSSA National. These events are planned, hosted and attended by PRSSA Chapters and are an opportunity for you to network and learn or to build your portfolio and gain event planning experience. Consider attending a Regional Conference — you may have the opportunity to participate in a case study competition, attend a workshop, participate in a roundtable or mingle at a social.
