PRXNE17: PR’s Role in Economic Development and The Bottom Line
Everything we do as Public Relations practitioners must directly support The Bottom Line. Our ideas, strategies, tactics, and measurement must all be tied directly to the business goals and the success of our organizations and our communities. We have seen a tremendous boom of economic development in the Finger Lakes region, throughout New York State, and across the Northeast District, and so much of our work as PR practitioners has supported these efforts, whether through tourism, cultural development or the success of the companies we work for. The presentations and workshops at PRXNE17 will focus on sharing success stories, case studies, and ‘how to’ tips to help attendees immediately implement these new learning's, and refocus their public relations efforts to truly support the bottom line of their own organizations or their clients’ organizations.
