Updates from Midwest District Conference

Jessica Ford, GKC-PRSA's PRISMS Co-chair, shares the spotlight at the 2015 Midwest District Conference in St. Louis, Mo. Featured speaker Mary Palu, EVP-Connections Strategy at Bailey Lauerman, talks about the value today of "T-People." View the video to learn what makes up the "stem" and the "crossbar," and how that really sets you apart as a PR pro.

Morgan Schaeffer, GKC-PRSA's VP-Business Opportunities, provides an update from under the Arch at the 2015 Midwest District Conference in St. Louis, Mo. Today's takeaway comes from guest speaker and author Fred Cook: Break your mold every day; try, read, or do something different. Pushing yourself out of your comfort zone will expose you to new things and help enhance your communications career. For more conference highlights, follow @GKCPRSA, @PRSA_MDC and #PRSAMDC on Twitter.

 

In this update from St. Louis, our chapter VP-Member Relations, Jessica Bjorgaard, gives a recap from the 2015 Midwest District Conference and some initial topics the chapter will be sharing with its members. For more conference highlights, follow @GKCPRSA, @PRSA_MDC and #PRSAMDC on Twitter.
