ESU’s PRSSA Attends the PRSSA 2014 National Conference

East Stroudsburg, PA, October 10, 2014 – Every year the Public Relations Student Society of America National Committee and Conference Committee hold a PRSSA National Conference in a city of their choice. This year, the city was Washington, D.C., the center of our country’s political system. At these conferences, PRSSA chapters from universities across the nation attend to network, discuss current day topics within the public relations field, and share award-winning research results. With professionals as hosts and deliverers of keynote speeches, the conference allows for an endless amount of opportunities to gain knowledge necessary to make for a formidable club and a successful you.
This year Tina Hennessey, ESU’s PRSSA President, and Brendon Abbazio, ESU’s PRSSA Vice President were able to attend and represent their school at the conference. The conference had a pre-schedules itinerary with all kinds of speeches, workshops, events, and sessions to choose from. The conference was held from October 10 – October 14. Tina and Brendon were only able to stay from the 10th to the 12th, but they made the best of the short stay and gained priceless insight from speakers such as Vanessa French, President and Founder of Pivot Point Communications, and Pam Jenkins, President of Powell Tate. Networking in between the functions allowed for strong connections among PRSSA chapters and resulted in gathering helpful tips that other clubs use to run their student-ran firms as well as providing some of their own tips. Between the invaluable knowledge gained and the exploration of one of our country’s most monumental cities, the PRSSA 2014 National Conference turned out to be not only a vital career decision to partake in, but an experience to last a lifetime.
