Saving Cash for Conference

If you want to attend National Conference in Indianapolis this October, the time to start saving is now! The deadline to register for both the conference and for a hotel room is Friday, Sept. 16.

Attending conference doesn’t have to break the bank. Here are a few money-saving tips and tricks to help make conference more affordable:

  • Apply for chapter scholarships
    • Texas PRSSA scholarships will be available to help cover costs. Details will be announced later this year.
  • Find cheap flight deals
    • Sites like TripAdvisor, Yapta, and Skyscanner allow you to set up email alerts that inform you when the price of a flight goes down.
  • Fly out of a bigger airport
    • Instead of flying out of Austin, consider flying out of a larger airport like Dallas-Fort Worth (DFW). Flights are significantly cheaper and are non-stop.
  • Share a hotel room
    • Rooming with other attendees will greatly reduce the cost of accommodation. Say the word and we’ll be happy to help you find a roommate!
  • Stay in Indy for a shorter time
    • You don’t have to stick around for the entire conference – PRSSA offers a cheaper rate for a single day’s sessions and events.

Last but not least…

  • Get partial reimbursement
    • You don’t even have to do anything for this one… we’ll partially reimburse anyone from our chapter who decides to go!
