The Public Relations Society of America is the nation’s largest association of public relations professionals and among the world’s largest associations of communicators. Its tag line is Advancing the Profession and the Professional. Since 1967, the North Carolina Chapter has helped set the standard for excellence in all aspects of the profession.

NCPRSA provides leadership, counsel, understanding, networking and educational growth opportunities for those within the profession and to those who may need public relations services.

  • If you are working in public relations or in the broad field of communications and are not an NCPRSA member, we invite you to look around our site, sample some of our networking and professional development events or give us a call. We’d love to share with you how professionals working in agency, corporate, government, military, faith-based and non-profit organizations benefit from their membership in NCPRSA.
  • If you are seeking public relations services, we can help you refine your search for the best fit for you. NCPRSA also maintains a speaker’s bureau of senior counselors available to news media, civic and other professional associations who can address the public relations side of current events and issues.
