Looking Beyond the Clouds:Down to Earth PR Strategies

On June 25, 2013, PR pros from around the Mid-Atlantic District met at the Sheraton Columbia Town Center Hotel in Columbia MD for the 2013 PRSA Mid-Atlantic District Chesapeake Conference. The Conference offered a full day of seminars, discussions and networking. The morning began with PRSA Chair-Elect Joe Cohen who discussed how PR practitioners and our industry must adapt to changing times. The day ended with a networking Happy Hour overlooking Lake Kittamaquandi. We’d like to thank our speakers and sponsors for making the day a success. And last but not least, our 2013 Conference Committee for all your hard work.
