You are formally invited to attend the #PRStudChat Class of 2011 Graduation Session on May 18th, 2011 at 8:30 pm EDT
It’s that time of year again when we celebrate the #PRStudChat graduating class. As a community, it’s a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the year, offer insight to our seniors and wish them well as they move forward into new and exciting communications initiatives. We’re ready to honor our graduating seniors with a special #PRStudChat session and a “Graduation Speaker” who will enlighten our graduates and the community about the changing world of media and PR and what to expect in the years ahead.
It is our pleasure to introduce a highly respected colleague, one who has made many great contributions to our industry…. Mark Ragan (@MarkRaganCEO), CEO of Lawrence Ragan Communications and the Publisher of Ragan’s PR Daily, a daily news site that delivers news, advice, and opinions on the public relations, marketing, social media and media worlds. Mark is going to join us on May 18th at 8:30 p.m. ET for a community discussion about media, publishing and content in a changing PR landscape.
For those of you less familiar with Lawrence Ragan Communications, for more than three decades, the company has been the leading publisher of corporate communications, public relations, and leadership development newsletters. Ever since the launch of The Ragan Report in 1970, Ragan has provided the professional communicator and executives with timely, practical, and relevant information that few others can match.
This #PRStudChat session will be a true celebration; complete with some very special graduation giveaways. We also have a very special graduation present for our senior class. Our friend, Harrison Kratz (@KratzPR) is helping us to put together a memorable gift for our graduates, as a reminder of their college years.
Whether you are a current student, a new graduate or a seasoned professional, we hope you will join #PRStudChat, and Mark Ragan, on May 18th at 8:30 p.m. ET, to engage in a dynamic discussion and to celebrate our seniors and all of their accomplishments over the past 4 years. Help us to congratulate them and wish them well, as they transition into their professional careers.
