Just 6 weeks until the 2012 Mid-Atlantic District Chesapeake Conference!
Wow…what a mouthful to say. But that’s what’s in store for you this year. A FULL day of education created especially to help you Strategize, Digitize and Energize!
So what will the day look like? You’ll start off with a networking breakfast to get you geared up. Then you’ll head right into the day, choosing from a variety of topics based on what you told us you wanted to see: more business and leadership skills, more PR tools, and more social media trends. What’s more, we’ve organized the sessions into three tracks—Strategic Business and Leadership, PR Essentials, Social Media—to help you create the best experience. You can stay on one track throughout the day, or alternate between tracks. It’s all up to you!
So what else is happening? Well, this year’s luncheon keynote speaker is Amy S. Mitchell, Deputy Director for the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism. Mitchell will share an insightful look at news in our digital lives. Be sure to check out Center’s 2012 State of the Media Report before the conference.
So who will be there? Last year’s conference was sponsored by three chapters—Maryland, National Capital, and Central Chesapeake—bringing together PR pros from a wider area than ever before. We’re all still participating, and this year we’re excited to welcome two more chapters to the fold: Blue Ridge and Central Pennsylvania. This means there will be PR pros coming from Maryland, DC, Virginia and Pennsylvania!
So don’t delay! The conference is scheduled for Thursday November 8, 2012 at the Four Points by Sheraton BWI. Click here for more information, including a peek at the full agenda, and begin planning your day!
