[Meet the Pros]

The Meet the Pros planning team works to create an exciting and informative seminar for college-level students interested in careers in advertising, marketing, communications and visual arts. Meet the Pros is an annual two-day conference giving area college students an opportunity to explore careers in the advertising industry. Meet the Pros includes skill-building workshops, portfolio reviews, agency tours and professional round table meet and greets. Students make professional contacts and the conference offers in-person direction in academic studies, work options and extracurricular activities that will assist students in achieving their career objectives.

Area advertising professionals are needed to assist with seminars, roundtable discussions and student portfolio reviews. To join the committee, volunteer during the event, or want to provide your thought leadership with students contact Meet the Pros Co-Chairs Shaela Wepfer or Erin Burhman.
