PRSA Bluegrass is back! Join us on Thursday, March 22 for a Newsmakers Panel you won’t want to miss—because this time, we’re talking Crisis Communications and the 2018 Louisville Flood.

Learn more about the critical role public relations plays in helping our local communities mitigate risk and improve the quality of response efforts during crisis situations.

Featured panelists include:

  • Marc Thomas, Collections Systems Director at Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District
  • Sheryl Lauder, Communications Program Manager at Louisville Metropolitan Sewer District

The HOT story…

In the fourth week of February 2018, massive amounts of rain poured down on Louisville, drenching neighborhoods, businesses, industrial districts, parks, roadways, and more. As a result, Louisville’s Metropolitan Sewer District (MSD)—the organization charged with maintaining and modernizing the city’s flood-protection systems—was thrust into the spotlight of breaking news.

Join us Thursday, March 22, to hear directly from MSD officials and to get exclusive, behind-the-scenes insight on how they weathered the storm.

*Be sure to join us at 11:30am for an opportunity to network before the panel begins promptly at noon!
