What Ripple Effect will Currents 2012 Have on PR?

In CPRS, Events on May 23, 2012 at 10:24 am

Every year, a different city from one coast of the country to the other plays host to the annual Canadian Public Relations Society conference. This year, CPRS National will bring Canada’s premier public relations and communications event to Victoria, B.C. The Canadian Public Relations Society is proud to provide a professional and entertaining conference to communicators across Canada.

Currents 2012 will offer delegates an exceptional three-day experience from June 10-12, where they’ll fill their days with professional development workshops and keynote presentations and their nights with planned social activities. CBC Radio listeners might recognize one of the confirmed keynote speakers, Anna Maria Tremonti, host of CBC Radio’s The Current. Tremonti will address delegates on the second day of the conference.

CPRS takes the old adage “save the best for last” to heart as the National Awards of Excellence Gala and Dinner will recognize the best communications campaigns in Canada on the final night of the conference.

As an advocate for the public relations and communications industry, CPRS wants to advance the profession by helping delegates enhance their careers through the workshops offered during the conference. These will cover an array of topics that include ethics and crisis communications, internal communications, trends in communications, and social media.

Come see what CPRS is doing for its members. Among the many conference workshops, CPRS offers several Society-themed sessions that focus on informing CPRS members about professional accreditation (APR), career mentoring (with CPRS Fellows) and media measurement (MRP). The CPRS National Council on Education is also hosting the second annual CPRS Poster Session. Public relations educators, graduate students and industry practitioners will present innovative research in the field of PR.

The benefits of attending Currents 2012 don’t end when PD workshops or keynote presentations finish. Combine the best of work and play with Victoria amenities and attractions, which provide that extra getaway time to soak in the West Coast climate. Over the course of the conference, delegates will be given the unique opportunity to network with fellow communicators from a range of industries from across Canada. In a profession as connected as PR, this conference provides an opportunity to strengthen old relationships and develop new ones with practitioners throughout the industry.

The marketplace is changing as quickly as the tides. Is your public relations strategy ship-shape?

  1. I’m pumped about the June 2012 CPRS National Conference in Victoria! If you’re wondering about attending – but have questions about it – I’m willing to answer them. I’ve had the pleasure to work with the Victoria Conference Committee to help put the program together.
