PRSSA Regional Conference

      This years Southeastern PRSSA Regional Conference will be held here at Georgia Southern University. All the PR majors and even non PR majors have gotten the opportunity to participate in planning this event. There are major PR professionals coming to our university to speak to the PRSSA members and all that would like to attend. The person that we are most excited to have come speak during this regional conference is Peter Shankman!!

      In order to plan this Regional activity the members of Georgia Southern University’s PRSSA have been split into small groups. Each group has been assigned certain aspects of event planning such as sponsorships, GSU liason, and logistics just to name a few. Each small group is working hard to make this vision a reality this coming March.

     The committee that I have been assigned to is the Logistics committee. The logistic committee is basically the event planing committee for this event. We are responsible for all the details of the conference. It is our job to make sure that there are venues for this event, that the other PRSSA members from different regions have a hotel to stay in, and taking care of the guest speakers that are coming in from different states. The logistics committee is responsible for making sure that every other committee has everything that they need to continue with their part of the project.

     We have been planing and talking about the regional conference for a little over a month now and I have learned tons in that short amount of time. When the positions available were first announced the logistics committtee was the furthest from my mind. I wanted to do something completely different. Now that I have gotten involved with my committee I have realized that this is something that I genuinely enjoy doing.

     Through being on this committee I have realized that I enjoy planning and making sure things are in order for big events. I believe that when March comes we will be the ones running around like chickens with our heads cut off making sure that all the last minute details are take care of and I’m ok with that. Last minute rushing is an adrenaline rush to me, I love the pressure.

     The PRSSA Regional Conference is going to be a huge success and I believe that people will take away from this wonderful experience. The conference is months and months away and I have already learned so much about my major and what it takes to be a real PR Professional!
