PRSSA Conference Canceled

In light of recent recommendations made by Santa Clara County Public Health Department regarding the current COVID-19 virus pandemic, we have made the tough decision to cancel the district conference. 

We’ve been keeping track of this situation and feel it has progressed in a way that warrants this decision. The health of our speakers and attendees must be the top priority and holding this event has become a risk factor. 

This isn't the end of PRSSA events this semester though, we still have great things planned! Please keep an eye out for upcoming events that we will be announcing after the conference is wrapped up.

Thank you all for being a part of PRSSA!
