Public Relations Society or America Northeast District

Annual Conference

Register Now

Each year, the PRSA Northeast District Chapter brings together more than 200 communications professionals from across the northeastern United States for a one-day conference exploring the newest technologies and practices to emerge in the field of public relations.

This year, we're headed to Buffalo—home of the original Buffalo wings, a burgeoning craft beer scene and a short ride to Niagara Falls. But we're really looking forward to a day of inspiration with you, as nearly two dozen of our colleagues from throughout the northeast chapter present their best, most interesting, and practical recipes to help you foster Integrated PR success wherever your work takes you.

Marketing, social media, public relations, advertising – you do it all. Your role as a communicator is constantly evolving, the mediums we use to tell our stories are changing faster and the lines between these functions are even less clear. All while you’re expected to do so much more with much less.

The Buffalo/Niagara PRSA Chapter proudly invites you to join us Friday, June 1 at the 2018 PRXNE District Conference—Communication Convergence: The Integrated Communicator.

Join us for this one-day conference and we’ll tackle emerging content marketing trends, share valuable insights for strategic planning, help you master the art of storytelling and give you all the tools you need to be successful in whatever communication role your job takes the next day.

The conference and overnight accommodations will be at the Hyatt Regency Buffalo (Two Fountain Plaza, Buffalo, NY 14202). Special hotel room rates of $115 per night for the PRxNE18 conference are available until May 1, 2018.

Liz Allen_keynote_2018.jpgHow Headlines are Made from Washington: Lessons from the White House

Lunch Keynote
Liz Allen
Senior Vice President, Glover Park Group

Social and digital media came of age between the past two White House administrations and with it, how news was consumed, spread and shared is forever reshaped. Twitter drives the day and White House press briefings have become fodder for late night sketch comedy. Liz Allen, former Deputy Communications Director for President Obama, gives us a behind-the-curtain look at a pivotal time that redefined the landscape and what it means for the future of communications.
