Friday Night Networking Event to be Held at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Home

The Marist College PRSSA Regional Conference Committee is pleased to announce that its networking event will be held on Friday, February 27, from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. at The Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Education Center at the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Home, which is located a short drive from Marist College in nearby Hyde Park. The FDR Presidential Library and Home is America’s first presidential library and a popular attraction for visitors to the Hudson Valley region of New York. We thank the staff of the FDR Presidential Library and Home for helping us make this event possible.  

What is the Itinerary for the Evening?

Conference attendees will be greeted in the lobby and given a brief overview of the FDR Presidential Library and Home before embarking on an hour-long self-guided tour. Upon completing the tour, attendees will meet up in The Henry A. Wallace Center for the networking portion of the evening’s event. There will be brief remarks and light refreshments served. Please check the conference website for transportation-related information.    

What Can I Expect to See?

Attendees will journey back in time to experience the Roosevelt presidency beginning from the Great Depression through the New Deal and World War II. In particular, the FDR Presidential Library and Home includes interactive exhibits along with some of the President’s personal treasures.

What Should I Bring?

Since this is a networking event, it is recommended that you dress in business attire and bring business cards to swap with fellow conference attendees – remember, building relationships is important in our industry.
