VIRTUAL: From the Campaign Trail to Political Office: Breaking Down the Lifecycle of PR in Politics

Kick off 2023 with PRSA Philadelphia as we dive into the complex lifecycle of political communications.
We will explore John Fetterman’s recent groundbreaking win for U.S. Senate, how to launch a gun
violence communications campaign with 150 civic leaders and the Mayor’s Office, thoughts about the
upcoming transition of Pennsylvania Governor-elect Josh Shapiro, and management of day-to-day PR
from Wilmington to Washington for Delaware’s sole Congresswoman Lisa Blunt Rochester (D-Del.).

And we’ll hear about it all directly from the professionals who oversaw or played a role with these most
critical communications strategies behind the scenes!
