ULM grad student attends national conference

University of Louisiana at Monroe second-year communication graduate student Michael Canty recently represented ULM at the 2009 Public Relations Student Society of America’s National Conference. Canty, of Morgan City, serves as PRSSA chapter president.

The event, held from Nov. 6-10 in San Diego, gives students an opportunity to meet peers and professionals in the public relations field. Seminars, workshops and presentations are held to enhance students’ education about public relations.

“The networking and professional development opportunities were invaluable,” Canty said. “I’m very grateful to have had the opportunity to experience what conference had to offer.”

In order to share the experience with his chapter, Canty wrote about the conference on the chapter’s blog, which can be found at

Canty works as a graduate assistant in ULM’s Office of University Relations.
