|Timely Topics at an Upcoming PR Conference
By: Doug Bedell
We're not in the business of promoting conferences, especially big-ticket ones, but we note the 2nd Annual National Summit on Strategic Communications sponsored by the Institute for Public Relations, Ex.L. Events, Inc., O'Dwyers and PR News and coming up in Arlington, Va., on June 6-7. Any gathering concerned about "Creating organizational cultures that value communication" and "Countering information 'lock downs' at precisely the time when more transparency and conversation with stakeholders is needed" is worth at least considering.
The "early bird" individual registration fee through April 22 is a hefty $1,095, but group discounts are available. The keynoter, Letitia A. Long, Director of the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency, heads an impressive roster of speakers. The conference will be at the Westin Arlington Gateway. Consider your professional development needs and those of colleagues and maybe this conference is a fit for you. You've got to download the conference brochure for details on price, etc.
