Each year, PRSSA National hosts a weekend leadership training session in Scottsdale, Arizona, for Chapter Presidents and Student-Run Firm Directors. Leadership Rally provides students with the chance to network with other Chapter leaders while learning more about how to effectively manage a PRSSA Chapter of any size.
