Public Relations Student Society of America
The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is an organization that encourages student professional development in the public relations and mass communications fields. Students participate in weekly workshops lead by experienced panelists and speakers in order to gain a more comprehensive understanding of the industry. In addition to networking events and mentorship programs, PRSSA members attend company tours, speaking engagements and conferences that broaden student connections outside the classroom--often leading to internship and job opportunities.
PRSSA SJSU will be attending the 2019 PRSSA International Conference in San Diego, CA this coming October. It is PRSSA SJSU’s mission to offer enrichment experiences to all of our members. PRSSA SJSU will be crowdfunding to best serve our members with professional development opportunities and raise funds for conference registration, travel and accomodation fees. In previous years, the conferences have been located on the East-Coast or Midwest, making it challenging for our members to access them. This year, the conference is located nearby in California, providing an accessible professional development opportunity for our members to network with professionals, participate in groundbreaking workshops and attend exclusive keynote sessions. With over 60 members, we are rapidly growing. We want to make this conference experience equitable to all of our members. Donations are invaluable to us! With your contribution, PRSSA will sponsor student members on this educational and fun opportunity to travel to meet peers and working professionals. Please consider donating to the PRSSA SJSU International Conference Fund.
