We're sorry, but registration is closed for the PRSA Central Ohio Conference; the event is sold out. We hope to see you at another chapter function soon.

Public relations has undergone drastic changes in just the last five short years. The way we communicate, how we reach our audiences and how we evaluate are just a few areas that have seen some of the most dramatic change. But what does the future hold for PR and the ways we communicate?

Join PRSA Central Ohio at the 2019 Central Ohio Conference and find out. The 2019 Central Ohio Conference will feature leaders in future PR and communications tactics as well as experts on the future of evaluation and measurement.

In addition, our keynote speaker will be Joe Santry of the Columbus Clippers, who will guide attendees through where PR has been, where it is today and what it will look like years into the future. You don't want to miss this conference!
