Beyond the Basics, brought to you by Scripps PRSSA, is a Regional Conference that will unite motivating speakers with ambitious students to learn, network and discuss the latest industry trends.

Regional Conferences are designed for PRSSA Chapters and industry related students to learn about public relations, the communications industry, career development and social media.  This event is a great tool for those who may not be able to attend national events, such as National Conference or National Assembly. 

Taking place on March 16, 2013, Beyond the Basics has planned a jam-packed day of awe-inspiring speakers and break out sessions. 

Keynote speaker: Ben Lincoln, from GolinHarris.

Break out #1: The first break out session will explore social media, with Scripps PRSSA advisor Dan Farkas, industry professional Nate Riggs, and branding guru Ed Burghard. 

Break out #2: During the second break out session, students will learn to deal with crisis management, featuring presentations from the Ohio University Leadership Center and President of Regional Marketing Alliance of Northeast Ohio, Richard Batyko. 

Break out #3: The last break out session #PostGradPRoblems, students will hear from the Ohio University Career Services and industry professional, Demi Clark.

After absorbing an abundance of new knowledge, attendees will have the opportunity to network at the Opportunities Fair. Professionals from different companies and agencies will be there for students to connect with, many regarding prospective career or internship openings.
