Thank you, Detroit and PRSA for a rockin’ conference!

prsajpgLast weekend, I had the privilege of blogging the 2008 PRSA International Conference with a team of several PR professionals and students. Thank you Detroit and PRSA National for allowing us the opportunity to spread “The Point of Connection” message to those who were unable to attend the conference and to those who attended the conference, but could not attend each session.

Please visit the ComPRehension blog to view and comment to all 62 posts about the conference. Even if you did attend the conference or viewed the posts last week, bookmark these posts and let us know how you are incorporating what you learned into your daily grind.

Not all of the posts are about social media. (Yes, breathe a sigh of relief.) We covered topics such as making the transition from professional to professor, copyright compliance, charting a course for global success and more! Also, check out the widget in the right sidebar on blog for the stream of tweets (#prsa08) during the conference! Interesting tidbits of information from twitterverse! The conversation is still going strong!

Thank you to all the peeps who came to our tweet-up/blogger dinner. We had 53 people and overflowing our allotted space at Sweet Lorraine’s! Good times! Thank you to all the guest bloggers who donated their time and writing skills to the blog. Thank you to PRSA National (specifically Barbara McDonald) for allowing the content to be so accessible and the fabulous people behind the scenes like Jasu Sims and Randi Mason who made the content available and placed tags and photos with posts! Give these people a pat on the back and let them know what you thought about the social media aspect of the conference.

Hope to see you next year in San Diego!

    Lauren,
    The Sunday night Tweetup was the highlight of my convention. It gave me a chance to meet people I have corresponded with online. And I discovered that we really do have a lot in common.
    Thanks to you and Kami Huyse for having organized this great meetup.

    Lauren,
    Thank YOU for bringing your pizazz and enthusiasm to the PRSA 2008 International Conference in Detroit! Not only did you rock the best hat at the event, you brought your thirst for conversation and sharing knowledge. It was a professional and personal pleasure to collaborate with you, Kami and all of the conference blog contributors. The Tweetup was icing.

    Joe,
    It was so great to meet you in person! Your tweets added so much to the entire conference! Next year, we will choose a location that can hold more people! ;)
    Barb,
    Next year, I am wearing a different hat for each day of the conference. I had a blast! It was great to be part of the PRSA team.
