CommCon2020: Virtual

CommCon2020 goes virtual

Each year, the annual PRSA Oregon Communicator’s Conference provides strategic communications professionals industry insights, interactive discussions and tangible skills.

Due to travel restrictions and unanticipated difficulties associated with the global COVID-19 pandemic, CommCon 2020 is now a virtual conference series, offered in one-hour segments from June through September. 

This year’s theme, Be the Change, will deliver valuable content in this ever-changing world. Over the next few months, you’ll have the chance to learn from industry professionals about pivoting your work into a virtual environment, improving your writing skills, plus critical ideas on bringing a stronger sense of ethics and inclusivity to your organizations.

You can purchase the entire six program series to receive one CommCon session for free: $50 for members and $75 for non-members. Each event is recorded. If an event has already passed, you will receive a link to the recording.
