This week seven St. Edward’s University students will attend the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) National Assembly. For the first time, the National Assembly will be hosted at the Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Austin.
The PRSSA National Assembly will host students and elected Chapter delegates from 248 universities nationwide. PRSSA members will receive leadership training as well as vote on the National Committee representatives. The conference will include a Day of Competition sponsored by the CW network and numerous keynote speakers. The Assembly begins on Thursday, March 11th and continues through Sunday, March 14th.
“We are very excited to have the National Assembly hosted in our hometown, because it provides our chapter with a greater opportunity to send students who want to participate and get involved,” said Ally Hugg, St. Edward’s PRSSA Chapter President.
Local PRSSA Chapters at The University of Texas, Texas State, and St. Edward’s University , along with the Austin PRSA Chapter, will be hosting a “Networking Bingo” that will give students a chance to meet each other and network with Austin area communication professionals. This opportunity will allow students to work on interviewing skills, and discuss recruitment opportunities following Assembly activities on Friday, March 13th at 5:30PM at the Hyatt.
The St. Edward’s University Chapter will be live Tweeting from the Assembly and the “Networking Bingo” from @SEUPRSSA and from personal Twitter accounts. Students will also be posting information on the Chapter blog and Facebook account.
