Why PRSA? The organization is made up of the best industry professionals and is the perfect place to grow as a public relations practitioner. Over the years, PRSA has been a great source of industry knowledge and tips, professional development and networking. As the newest Director of Diversity Outreach, I knew it was time to give back to this important organization.
