Virtual Connect 2020

Friday, December 4

9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

This year has been a hectic one! Communicators had to come full stop and readjust to a new and virtual way of doing things.

Mark your calendars for the first-ever Virtual Connect Conference. Members of South Carolina Public Relations Society of America and International Association of Business Communicators/South Carolina welcome YOU to join us for a half-day conference featuring three unique sessions.

There will also be some “social” time for attendees to catch up with colleagues from around the state.

Stay tuned for the official line up of sessions and speakers!
