Share your knowledge and gain recognition by presenting at the PRSA’s Western District Conference 2017.

The Call for Speakers is open until 11:59 p.m. PST on Tuesday, December 20, 2016

The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) is pleased to issue the following call for speakers for the 2017 Western District Conference, March 2-3, 2017 in historic downtown Riverside. This year’s conference is hosted by the Inland Empire chapter of PRSA.

We’re interested in topics that focus on communication trends that will help public relations professionals to master new skills, adopt new ways of doing business or advance their career. We are looking for speakers who can bring insights into one of three categories:

  • Tools & Techniques
  • Integration & Specialization
  • Thought Leadership

Our tools are constantly changing. We continue to blur traditional marketing and communications roles. There is a steady stream of fresh ideas to bring to our organizations and clients. But through it all, one thing is constant: #PRmatters. If you can help bring these fresh ideas to other professionals, we are looking for you as a presenter!

PRSA Western District Conference presenters will offer attendees fresh, innovative thinking and clear takeaways. They will walk away from your program full of inspiring insights that energize and challenge.

If this can be you, we want to hear from you!
