Welcome SNHU Student Chapter and Panel Discussion – Sept 22

Join Yankee Chapter PRSA on Monday, September 22 as we officially welcome the Southern New Hampshire University’s PRSSA, followed by a panel discussion with some of Yankee Chapter’s younger members. We’ll discuss the benefits of being a PRSA member, internships, networking and what it is like to work in the field of communications.

Two SNHU PR classes will be joining us for this event, so all guests are welcome to offer their advice and talk about their experiences during the panel discussion. Let’s offer the next generation of PR practitioners some insight into our profession and discuss the value of PRSA membership.
