A New Look for the New Year: The PRSA Events Calendar

A new key Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) membership benefit grants members free access to the 50 live and on-demand online public relations training webinars that are planned for this year, and now, there is a more user-friendly way for you to find them.

PRSA Calendar of Events

We have been working behind the scenes on the PRSA Calendar of Events to make virtual programming and in-person training easier and faster for you to locate. You can browse training sessions by date, or fine-tune your search by selecting a category to find a session by category.

PRSA Calendar of Events By Date

Click Narrow By Category to see the categories available.

Narrowing the Calendar of Events by Category

To access the free live and on-demand online training webinars or pay the member rate for in-person training seminars, first log in to your MyPRSA account and then complete the registration.

Expanded program categories, which are defined on each category page, now include:

Fail-Safe Browsing

Many of our training programs fit comfortably into more than one category. You will find such programs on each appropriate category page. For example, “Anatomy of a 2.0 Release” can be found under the Writing and Techniques & Tactics categories.

Current Events

On Demand Public Relations Training Webinars

Professional Interest Sections Webinars

If you would like to explore industry-specific topics, PRSA Professional Interest Sections offer webinars that address current industry issues and trends. Sections members can access their Section’s webinars for free (a charge is applied to all others). If you do not belong to a PRSA Section, you may join at any time to get insider industry information that is critical in today’s highly competitive workforce.

I hope you will take advantage of this new PRSA member benefit. PRSA offers a wide range of content; if you don’t see what you need, tell me!
