PRSA International Conference Returns to San Diego in 2019

Mark your calendars! October 20 – 22, 2019 will be a very special time for our chapter. We will be hosting the 2019 PRSA International Conference (ICON) at the Marriott Marquis Hotel downtown. We are in the process of building our Host Committee and are seeking maximum involvement by our chapter members. The Host Committee Chairs, Immediate Chapter Past President Melissa Cameron ( or Ethics Chair Bill Gay, APR, Fellow PRSA ( will be forming a number of subcommittees. They will be focused on sponsorships, coordination of the opening reception, a hospitality committee to serve as a “welcome wagon,” as well as a public relations and marketing group to handle local marketing and media room staffing. As you can imagine, this will be a major event for our chapter. It will mark the tenth anniversary of the last time San Diego hosted the ICON and will be the first time since 2012 that the conference is on the West Coast. We look forward to an exciting year and a half as we plan for the conference. If you are interested in becoming involved, email either Bill or Melissa. We look forward to your involvement!
