About the FPRA Annual Conference
Our conference brings together PR professionals from across the state to hear from world-class speakers hailing from top global corporations, powerhouse industries and national public relations and marketing firms. From golfing to fire pit gatherings, decadent chocolate breaks and more, conference attendees are also able to connect and unwind with their professional peers representing industries such as government, healthcare, technology, tourism, public utilities, law enforcement, finance, education, nonprofit and agencies. In addition, our conference provides several exciting platforms for PR professionals to be recognized for their good works and accomplishments. Whether that comes in the form of receiving a Golden Image Award or being recognized for earning the APR and/or CPRC credentials.
