Why PRSA? As a long-time member of PRSA, I never cease to be amazed by the public relations professionals I have met through this organization. I have the opportunity to be around some of our industry’s brightest stars and an exceptional group of people who truly embody the PRSA slogan of advancing the profession and the professional. You don’t have to be a member of PRSA to practice public relations. But if you want to be among the best, there’s no better organization to be a part of.
