PRSSA students fly off to San Diego for 2009 national conference

Students from UNO's Public Relations Student Society of America flew off to "America's finest city" for the 2009 PRSSA National Conference from Nov. 6 - 10.

Students headed over to San Diego on Nov. 5 at 6:30 a.m. central time and arrived around 7:30 a.m. pacific time.

The conference themed "Creating Currents: Surfing the Waves of Change" in San Diego consists of interactive sessions and workshops shaped to provide young public relations professionals with the following currents of change: crisis management, media relations and entertainment, international, fashion and health care.

Keynote speakers, such as Arianna Huffington, founder of The Huffington Post, will be speaking to students during sessions.

There are also career development and networking workshops for students to swap resumes and business cards. Students are also going to be honored for their hardwork and accomplishments as a chapter.
