“This is a huge opportunity for our PRSSA group and I am really excited to see what the team develops and to guide them through the process,” says Kelly C. Gaggin, SUPRSSA faculty advisor and professor of public relations at Syracuse University.

This annual conference brings together hundreds of students representing the country’s top public relations programs. SUPRSSA president Daniella French, executive vice president Jake Skolnick and Hill Communications firm director Erin Jacobs will travel to Dallas in November to promote the conference at the PRSSA International Conference.

“This is a historic moment for SUPRSSA and marks the first fully in-person district conference since the COVID-19 pandemic,” French says. “I am proud of our team and excited to have the opportunity to connect with other leaders in PRSSA and our industry at the national conference.”

Skolnick says they are dedicated to creating a meaningful experience for all who attend.

“Attendees can look forward to a valuable array of speakers and programming that will pay dividends in their careers, whether prospective or current.”
