ISU PRSSA Takes on National Conference By: Kelly Larson

Imagine a hotel filled with public relations students and professionals from across the country coming together to accumulate advanced knowledge and valuable connections within the industry. Every fall the Public Relations Student Society of America hosts a national conference where memories are made and a passion for the industry evolves. “Rethink. Rebuild. Renew.” was the theme of PRSSA 2015 National Conference held in Atlanta. This was also the first year where PRSSA National Conference was hosted in the same hotel and at the same time as the Public Relations Society of America International Conference. Making it a great opportunity for students to network with professionals and future employers. Seven members of the Illinois State University Chapter of the PRSSA took on a rainy “ATL” and amassed rich experiences and insight to bring back to the Chapter. The conference kicked off November 6 and came to a close November 10. Members attended an opening night celebration, keynote addresses, diverse sessions and panels, officer discussions, PRSA general sessions, a career development exhibition, and an awards ceremony. The conference began with a “Night of the Premiere” opening night celebration on Friday. Members devoured a delicious meal and mingled with students from other chapters around the country. DJ Ricky also provided some hype for a big dance party. [Continued on page 3]
