The cost is $20 for members, $35 for nonmembers and $15 for students and retirees. Register at www.prsasierra.org for the workshop and the luncheon.

“This workshop caters to every professional, whether entry-level or with decades of experience,” said Alison Gaulden, APR, president of Sierra Nevada PRSA. “Each session provides an opportunity to delve deeper into the nitty-gritty of specific topics, lifting you from the standard PowerPoint fare so common in standard lectures.”

The event will feature three distinct tracks, offering something for every practitioner.

Attendees can choose between the Tactics (entry level), Strategies (mid-level) and Leadership (solo/vast experience level) tracks or mix and match sessions that they want to attend.

Proceeds provide value-added professional development for the Reno-Tahoe community of public relations practitioners, as well as benefit the local chapter and its goal to support the student public relations chapter at the University of Nevada, Reno.
