Each year FPRA presents the ultimate in professional development opportunities – the Annual Conference. The 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. The event is jam-packed with entertaining, informative, inspiring speakers and break-out sessions. The President’s Luncheon serves as the platform from which individual members and Chapters are honored for outstanding work and dedication to the profession. The Golden Image Awards Gala is a conference highlight, showcasing the best in public relations from around the state.
