PRSA Boston Announces The NonProfit Center as Venue for Nov. 9th Reception with GE’s CCO Deirdre Latour

BOSTON, Oct. 18, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- PRSA Boston has announced that its November 9th C-Suite Conversation, Reception + Annual Meeting featuring keynote GE’s Chief Communications Officer Deirdre Latour will be held at The NonProfit Center of Boston, adjacent to the Financial District and one block from South Station. This will be Ms. Latour’s first formal event at which to answer the question: What Does GE’s Arrival Mean for Us?

The NonProfit Center, at 89 South Street, houses 44 nonprofit organizations in addition to professionally-managed function space and is a fitting backdrop to learn more about GE’s philosophy around community engagement and philanthropy.

Ms. Latour will update GE’s story now that its worldwide headquarters move to Boston is well underway, evidenced by construction in the Seaport District and regional hiring. While the centerpiece of her remarks is expected to be the use of ‘adaptive communications’ by innovation business sectors, she will speak to how GE intends to localize its philanthropic footprint and provide insights about its talent recruitment.

Advance online registration is available here and at Eventbrite. The reception begins at 5:45PM followed by the election of the PRSA Boston Board of Officers for 2017 and the presentation of PRSA Boston’s highest award for exemplary public relations leadership.
