For the first time (in recent history or that anyone can recall), the PRSA Maryland, National Capital, and Central Chesapeake Chapters have teamed up to put on a regional conference! After a bit of a rough (and late!) start, we finally got the 2011 PRSA Mid-Atlantic Chesapeake Conference Planning Committee going.
Representatives from all three chapters have worked tirelessly all year to brainstorm session topics, locate relevant speakers, find sponsorships, develop conference collateral, and then promote the darned thing! All the while, we have had great fun forming relationships, networking, gaining valuable experience, and bonding in an energetic, collegial environment.
It has been a really wonderful time working with all three chapters. We’re looking forward to enjoying the conference next week!
There’s still time to register for this year’s conference. Go to http://www.prsamd.org/news/events2011/nov11program.htm. Seating is limited and tickets are going fast, so hurry!
And we’re going to keep building on this momentum. If you would like to get in on this synergistic, collaborative effort to plan next year’s conference, please don’t hesitate to e-mail Peggy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
