2018 PRSSA Agency/Industry Tours Day

Arkansas PRSSA students are invited to attend the annual PRSSA Agency Tour Day! We’ll visit four agencies in Little Rock to learn from their leaders about some of their best work and how they use public relations strategies in times of crisis. Our hope is that you will gain invaluable insight about some of the best PR work in Central Arkansas. Attendees will also attend the monthly PRSA meeting to network and hear from Jenifer Daniels, APR, about the importance of diversity in visual storytelling.

Students should be signed in by 8:45am at Mangan Holcomb Partners (MHP) so the program can begin on time. The MHP office is located in the Riverdale area at 2300 Cottondale Lane. Once there, please park in the lot directly across the street from the WindRiver building. Come inside and take the elevator to the third floor. Lamor Williams, Diamond Lewis and Lea Whitlock will be there to greet you. Attire for the day should be business/business casual (no jeans allowed).

Transportation to all locations will be provided by PRSA to avoid any snafus with parking downtown.

Students must register online so that accommodations can be made. If paying with cash or check, please bring it with you on that day. The cost is $35 for student chapter members and $50 for non-PRSSA members. This includes your lunch and transportation.
