2022 PRAM Conference

Gulfport’s beacon beckons!

Join Mississippi’s leading public relations practitioners at the Public Relations Association of Mississippi’s 2022 conference at the Gulfport Beachfront Courtyard by Marriott April 3-5.

Public relations serves as a beacon, its practitioners steadfastly providing critical service in calm and crisis. As the management function that establishes and maintains mutually beneficial relationships between an organization and the publics on whom its success or failure depends, public relations is the illuminating source for an organization, establishing its position and guiding it to its destination.

With a breadth of topics as wide as the Gulf, attendees will find new insights, strategies and tactics to help navigate crisis communication, ethics, media relations, leading the PR function, social media and even harness the power to change minds.
