Don’t let tonight’s debate push the The National Black Public Relations Society’s 2012 Conference and Career Fair off your DC PR radar.

Hundreds of PR pros from around the country will gather in our nation’s capital this Thursday through Sunday for four days of professional development, networking activities, career advancement sessions under the theme “Your Network @ Work: Facing Challenges, Taking Charge and Changing the Game.”

In the words of NBPRS President Deborah Hyman, “Public relations has never been more relevant on a global scale and especially in this election year.”

“We know that social media is replacing traditional media at warp speed so PR professionals have to continually expand our knowledge base to succeed…Our conference will focus on discussing critical issues, professional development and obtaining jobs for our members.”
