Join the PR Professionals!

Welcome to the website of the Public Relations Society of America Madison Chapter, representing public relations and communications professionals from across the greater Madison area, from recent college graduates to mid-level professionals to leaders in agency, corporate and nonprofit settings.

As a communicator, you have to keep pace with changes in society, track organizational issues and know the latest trends. PRSA Madison can help you meet these challenges and capitalize on the opportunities offered by them. To that end, we offer:

• Regular professional development luncheons
• Ongoing networking events
• Professional accreditation (APR)
• Volunteer and community service opportunities
• Leadership experience through Board service
• Recognition through our annual awards program, the Alchemy Awards

We are part of a national organization, chartered in 1947, which is the world’s largest and foremost organization of public relations professionals. With more than 21,000 members, PRSA provides professional development, sets standards of excellence and upholds principles ofethics for its members and, more broadly, the multi-billion dollar global public relations profession.

The national PRSA also advocates for greater understanding and adoption of public relations services, and acts as one of the industry’s leading voices on the important business and professional issues of our time. In addition, there are more than 10,000 students who are members of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) at colleges and universities here and abroad. Our local chapter is actively engaged with several area PRSSA chapters.

Our chapter is only as good as our members. We encourage you to explore this site, learn more about our organization and get involved.
