Find out why Boston.com will dominate

Due to circumstances beyond our control, we have had a speaker change for the PRSA Boston Annual Meeting. Instead of Howie Carr, David Beard the editor of Boston.com and Boston Globe veteran will discuss:

His perspective on the ever-evolving news industry and discuss the rise of social media and emerging dominance of online news over print.

He will also provide specific advice on the types of stories and topics they seek to cover on Boston.com, plus how the Website works with, yet differs from, The Boston Globe.

Beard will also share anecdotes from his rich journalism experience, which has included stints as a deputy foreign editor, regional editor and assistant managing editor of The Boston Globe and as a foreign correspondent for the Associated Press in Latin America.

Also on the Program Agenda:
Presentation of the Fourth Annual PRSA Boston Beacon Award For Lifetime Achievement in Public Relations to Kirk Hazlett, APR, president of PRSA Boston
Election of the 2008 Chapter Officers

Sponsored by Market Wire
When: November 13, 2007 – 6:00 - 8:30 p.m.
Dinner & Networking 6-7:00
Program 7-8:30

    Sorry I will miss this due to a conflict, but-- I am actually excited about the change in speakers. This sounds a lot more interesting and relevant to us than Mr. Carr.
