Thanks to a special sponsorship by the Tampa public relations and communications firm Tucker/Hall Inc., a limited number of Tampa Bay public relations students will be selected to attend the PRSA Tampa Bay chapter’s 2018 Professional Development Day on August 16 at no charge.

The sponsorship creates a unique opportunity for local students to network with professionals while attending five informative sessions about the evolution of public relations practice in a changing media landscape. Top PR speakers will lead sessions on the crossroads of branding and public relations, crisis management, digital advertising, cross-channel communications, and multiculturalism in public relations. The day-long program includes breakfast, lunch and parking at a premiere venue, The Vault in downtown Tampa.

Students and recent graduates interested in receiving this program scholarship must apply online by July 31, 2018. Those selected will be notified by August 9.
