Generation Z Insights: What Public Relations Means to the Digital Crowd

Born after 1996, today’s young professionals are digital natives, having lived their entire lives in an online world.

Join the Greater Fort Worth Chapter of PRSA from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 7, at Ridglea Country Club and hear from a panel of promising young communicators on what strategies and tactics best reach their peers.

Our final luncheon and program of 2022 is on Wednesday, December 7 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Ridglea Country Club. I hope you can join us for “Generation Z Insights: What Public Relations Means to the Digital Crowd.” Get your tickets here by 11:59 p.m. on Thursday, December 1.
