Last minute tips for Beyond the Basics success!

Ready for Beyond the Basics? Tomorrow is sure to be a day full of PR buzz, new connections and inspiring speeches for all conference attendees. To prepare yourself to make the most of this exciting opportunity, here are some tips for Beyond the Basics success…

Gather your business cards. At the moment, Beyond the Basics has over 100 students registered from 12 different schools. (Not to mention several professionals attending our Opportunities Fair, and our list of established speakers!) In other words, you’ll want to make connections.

Don’t forget your resumes and portfolios. Several of our professional attendees have mentioned that they are willing to offer advice and reviews. Oh, and have you heard? The Opportunities Fair will be bringing you several opportunities to find a new lead for your job or internship hunt.

Heat up the iron! Dress will be business casual. Some walking will be required. Also, check out the Athens, Ohio weather forecast for the weekend.

Grab your donations. In light of our PRSSA National Initiative, Scripps PRSSA will be collecting non-perishable food items to be sent to the Athens AreaEmergency Food Bank.

Set your GPS. The day will begin with attendee registration at 9:30 AM in Baker Center on the Ohio University campus in Athens, Ohio.

Feast your eyes. The Beyond the Basics Regional Conference and PaRtners Conference will bring you to the beautiful campus of Ohio University. Snow or sunshine, prepare to be captivated.

Join the conversation: we will be tweeting throughout the event. Be sure to follow @PRSSARCBeyond and be a part of the conversation by tweeting with the #BeyondTheBasics hashtag.

Think before you park! We do not want you to get a ticket. All lots on the campus are color coded and monitored throughout the weekend. Speakers should look out for reserved parking in lot 120 located outside of Baker Center. Attendees are welcome to park for free in any of the Dark Green or Purple lots. (If you park at a meter, you will still have to pay it!)
