Monthly Luncheons and Featured Events
Monthly luncheons are held in Anchorage and Fairbanks. Recent program topics include: social media, government relations, reputation management, media relations and crisis communications.
In 2016, Anchorage monthly luncheons will be held one Wednesday of each month, with exceptions for holidays and venue scheduling conflicts.
Please Note: Registration closes four business days before event
In order to honor our commitment with the venue, the PRSA Alaska Chapter will close registration for all Anchorage programs at noon, four business days prior before each professional development session. This will ensure your seat and meal at the session. At-the-door sales will only be accepted if space is available at the start of the meeting. If seats are not available, walk-ins may purchase a late registration ticket to the event and receive coffee service.
