Details: Over the past year, social media has become of paramount importance to our industry. It is affecting us on a strategic, tactical and even personal level. So, Phoenix PRSA has gathered some of the most successful social media practitioners in the Valley to participate in an open panel discussion on the topic. No stone will be left unturned; no question will be left unanswered. Our panelists represent a broad spectrum of our industry as a whole and include:

  • Charlotte Risch, owner of the Media Push PR Agency and freelancer for the Valley PR Blog (representing for agencies)
  • Catherine Herman, director of Corporate Communications for the Arizona Diamondbacks (representing for sports)
  • Andrea Sok, director of Community Relations for the Save the Family Organization (representing for non-profits)
  • Kelley Cooper, internet marketing manager for the Greater Phoenix CVB (representing for tourism)
  • Johna Burke, vice president of BurrellesLuce (representing measurement)

We are also happy to have PR Tactics columnist and local corporate public relations practitioner Ryan Zuk as our moderator for the event and a very special venue – the First Amendment Forum at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communications.

We will also be tweeting live from the event and welcome others to do the same under the hash tag #phxprsa so we can keep track of the tweets.
