Additionally, the APR Boot Camp scheduled for April 22-24 in Houston has been canceled, along with many national PRSA events. 


What are PRSA Austin's Future Programming Plans?

In place of our in-person events, PRSA Austin is working to make web conference programs available to Austin's marketing and communications community. More information about the topics, dates, and how to participate in these virtual events will be provided as we finalize these programs. Some will be specific to COVID-19, while others will deal with other topics. Updates will be shared on our website, social media, and e-blasts. 

If you have some ideas about program topics or would like to learn more about hosting virtual programs, we'd love for you to join our Programs Committee! Email us at [email protected].
