Digital technology has transformed the way people live, work and play, but that progress can come at a price. The Public Affairs Conference is here to open discussion on those obstacles and how to become better digital consumers.
“The 21st Century Digital World” is the theme of the 2019 conference at Missouri State University, Oct. 1-3. The conference includes:
- A total of 27 sessions.
- One pre-conference special event.
- A keynote speech from Bobby Bones.
- Four plenary speakers.
All are free and open to the public, with each session other than the keynote and a closing special event occurring at Plaster Student Union. No tickets or registration are required to attend any event.
