McCormick on PRSA Conference: We’re Offering Value


The numbers are in and this year’s PRSA conference had 3,129 attendees, according to the organization, a number that falls in line with its yearly anticipated range.

While attending the conference earlier this week, PRNewser sat down with Gary McCormick, chair and CEO of PRSA. In the clip above, he talks about PRSA’s offerings, which focus on bringing the value of PR to clients. And McCormick discusses the value of the annual conference, which he says gives attendees the chance to sit across from colleagues and contacts in a way that online correspondence doesn’t.

If you’re one of the 3,100+ who attended, what did you think? And if you didn’t, why not?

Gerard Corbett, founder and president of RedPhlag, was named the 2012 chair and CEO of the PRSA. What suggestions do you have for him and the other newly-selected leaders of the organization?
