WHY PRSA? Since I began writing for newspapers after college, I needed to build my public relations knowledge during a transition early in my career, beyond what my communication major offered. PRSA provided me with continued education, accreditation, a mentor, resources, leadership opportunities and a way to give back to my profession.
