Overall, attending this year’s national conference can significantly make an impact in your life as a public relations student and soon-to-be PR professional. If you are new to public relations and want more experience in the field, if you are an officer who wants to enhance their chapter or if you are a senior wanting to make as many networking opportunities as possible before graduation – then attending the 2016 National Conference is the right move for you.
