Veterans in Public Relations Meet Up

Tuesday, March 15
12:30PM - 1:30PM

JW Marriott
Room 210
110 E 2nd St

Many military veterans in public relations had previous communications experience in the military. SXSW offers a platform for individual Veterans to share their past experiences, expertise and professional camaraderie among themselves in a productive, informal session. The intended goal is to have Veterans interacting with their peers, who now work in private industries, government agencies and the nonprofit sector. Communications concepts remain the same throughout industries and the common bond among communications professionals equals that of military veterans. SXSW is a fantastic environment for future trends, and veterans offer many unique insights due to their past experiences.
