Speaker and Sponsorship Opportunities Available

The National Black Public Relations Society (NBPRS), the premier professional organization for African-American communicators, hosts its 11th NBPRS Conference and Career Fair Oct. 27 – 30 in Milwaukee at the InterContinental Milwaukee hotel. The conference attracts more than 500 practitioners from around the country.

Themed, “Your Network @ Work: Managing Transitions, Techniques and Technology for Career and Business Success,” the conference addresses the latest strategies and newest technologies to keep PR professionals competitive and viable, especially in a down economy.  “As a society, we are still in the midst of the most challenging economic times since the Great Depression and the public relations industry is among those hardest hit,” said NBPRS President Wynona Redmond.

“The conference brings together recruiters and qualified candidates at the Career Fair, provides excellent networking opportunities with corporate and agency leaders and offers solid programming to help keep the NBPRS network working,” Redmond said. Topics include social marketing and media, branding, the new “hybrid” PR professional, social responsibility, emerging trends in PR, current case studies and recent lessons learned.

Also at the conference, NBPRS will publish the first ever NBPRS Network @ Work Membership Guide, the only national directory of African-American public relations professionals. The publication will feature some of the best and brightest PR practitioners in the country.  Sponsorships are available for the conference and the Membership Guide.
