About our Events

Agency/Corporate Tours – We aim for two tours of local PR agencies or corporate communication departments per month. Any UMN members are invited to attend. Agency tours in the past have included Lola Red, Beehive Strategic Communication, Best Buy, Mall of America, etc. See our schedule of upcoming tours in the events schedule above.

Annual Winter Trip – Our chapter takes a trip each winter to a different city. We usually tour 4-5 agencies or corporate offices and see the local sites! Our trip in 2017 was to Denver and our trip in 2018 was to Atlanta. Let us know if there’s someplace you’d like to go next year!

Spring Networking Night – Our chapter puts on a networking night at a local restaurant. We invited many professionals from different PR and communication industries to network with our students. This year’s Spring Networking Night will be March 28.

Twin Cities Day of Tours – Our chapter spends one full Friday during the spring to tour 3-4 local agencies. Last year’s agency visits included Maccabee, Weber Shandwick, Exponent PR and Mirum Agency. This year’s Twin Cities Day of Tours will be on April 6. Stay tuned to find out which agencies we will visit!
