Last May's PRSA Connect conference in Dallas was one of the best internal communications conferences I've ever attended. What made it great? The number of attendees, the variety of speakers and the overall heightened energy through the two and a half days. As a member of the PRSA Employee Comms Section Board, I'm proud of what we accomplished.
But we have even higher expectations for 2017 (and no, that's not a Colorado pun). As the tagline says, we're looking to help you "Elevate Your Impact." The 2017 Connect Conference takes place in Denver June 14-16 at the Curtis Hotel (a super cool place). June seems like a long ways away but we're actively seeking speakers for next year's event right now.
PRSA Connect 17 is a great venue to share your ideas and great work in internal communications. The call for presentations is live now and the deadline to submit is Friday, November 11. I'd love to see another great round of topics like we had in 2016 but it's going to take you to submit your ideas and successes. Check out this overview, which includes proposal guidelines, application instructions and rules.
We're also actively seeking partners for the event. If your organization would like to be involved and get better connected with amazing communicators, you can sponsor at a variety of levels. If interested, let me know.
And I hope to see some of you next year in Denver.
