About Us

The Palm Beach Chapter provides monthly professional development and networking opportunities to hundreds of communications professionals throughout Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast. Educational luncheons and after-hour mixers are developed with your interests in mind, always featuring quality programming that is essential to communications professionals.

The Chapter often hosts Meet the Media panels with top editors, reporters and producers, as well as topics on social media, new technology, crisis communications and other key topics. In addition, the Palm Beach Chapter hosts Professional Development Day, an annual conference with multiple timely seminars and keynote speakers. PD Day is hosted in conjunction with the Palm Awards, which recognizes excellence in public relations and honors a local long-standing practitioner with the distinguished Dick Gruenwald Founders Award.

The Chapter's Career Development Initiative assist members and non-members in finding local jobs through periodic job announcements. The initiative also assists in advancing professionals by mentoring them to become Chapter and District leaders and obtaining Accreditation in Public Relations.
