Travel

Do you want to network with professionals in New York City?

As a member of OSU PRSSA, you will be granted the opportunity to travel to Chicago or New York City for networking purposes. While on this trip, you will find yourself visiting various agencies that align with your desired career path. This is a wonderful opportunity to bond with fellow PRSSA members, and make connections outside of Ohio that could later on lead to potential internships and/or a career. The Chicago trip will take place in November, and the New York City Trip will take place in January. Keep an eye out for additional information.

Do you want to network with professionals and other PRSSA students from across the country and the world?

Every year, the national chapter of PRSSA hosts an International Conference which hosts members of PRSSA from chapters around the country as well as professionals with insight on the industry. International has been hosted in locations like Boston, Austin and San Diego. This year looks a little different, because ICON 2021 is completely online! This means international conference will be even more accessible this year.


Point System

If you’re interested in either of these travel opportunities, agency tours and other activities hosted by PRSSA, it is important that you rack up some points! Below are point values that show how each active, paying PRSSA member can earn opportunities for all of our PRSSA activities. Having points is not a guarantee you wil receive and opportunity but it does give you a leg up when certain experiences are limited to a certain number of members.
