I’m getting used to the idea that I have been plying this craft for more than (or is that ‘over’? NOT!) 35 years. I am an old dog and, literally, a greybeard. Which is not to say I know it all, not by a long shot. I treasure my PRSA membership for the learning opportunities it provides me.
It is true, though, that in those years I have been to many conferences. They all have held something new for me, especially when I filled a generalist role. Conferences tend to offer a broad menu to appeal to a broad audience. It’s their nature.
Then there’s Connect ’14, planned this year for May 20–21 in Chicago. I have really enjoyed being part of the Employee Communication Section’s planning team for this conference because we all share that specialty: employee communications.
