Join a conference committee!

What are your passions and expertise? We’d love to pick your brains, and have you join us on a conference committee! As we explore specific topics, we currently have the following four committees: 

Logistics & Finance: Do you have expertise in planning, mapping things out, and managing funds? The Logistics and Finance Committee could use your eye for detail! Led by Chapter Treasurer Amy Cronin, the Logistics and Finance Committee is the backbone of the conference. If you’re curious about learning what it takes to pull off a medium-to-large scale event, this committee is a great place to test your event planning skills and get your feet wet. If you’ve held a role in planning the PRxNE District Conference before, this is also a place where your expertise can shine.

Marketing & Publicity: Even in the PR world, we still need help getting the word out. We’re looking for writers to help us fill content. We also need your networks to help us spread the word! If you would like to write, please lend your expertise to amplify our ambassadors. This committee is also a place where graphic design talents can shine! We could use help beautifying our publicity materials.

Programming: When you think about public relations, is there a topic you’d love to learn more about? Maybe you’re an expert in a particular element and are looking for a platform to share your knowledge. Led by Alice Maggiore, the Programming Committee will be tasked with putting out a call for speakers and reviewing applications, then putting together an exciting schedule for conference attendees. 

Sponsorship: Are you good at negotiating, and seizing visibility opportunities to get the most bang out of your buck? The sponsorship committee, led by PRSA-CNY president Melissa Richards, could use your keen eye to help us leverage all the opportunities. PS: Please let us know if your company or organization wants to boost its visibility by supporting the conference. It’s a great way to get in front of approximately 200 engaged public relations and marketing professionals.

If any of these committees and volunteer opportunities interest you, please email Alice Maggiore at:
