About Us


Welcome to the Palm Beach Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. We are professional communicators from Palm Beach County and Martin County, more than one hundred strong, who utilize membership for professional development, networking, career insights, camaraderie, training, and recognition of excellence.

Our parent organization is the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), the nation's largest professional organization serving the communications community with a mission to make communications professionals smarter, better prepared and more connected through all stages of their career. PRSA represents 30,000+ members spanning every industry sector. Members of our chapter are members of the national organization. The Palm Beach Chapter has been active since 1988 and operated as a member-driven, 501 (c) 6.

We assist members in finding local jobs and with professional advancement by offering mentoring and training to obtain Accreditation in Public Relations.

Members enjoy events throughout the year. Non-members are invited to attend. Please join our mailing list to be notified of upcoming programming and social events.

Our Chapter produces the prestigious annual Palm Awards Communication Contest and Palm Awards. The competition invites members and non-members to submit professional work; entries are judged out of state by another PRSA chapter, and the award-winners will be recognized for excellence. The event also honors individuals for excellence in public relations nominated by the community.

We welcome you to take part in our programs and discover the camaraderie and resources available to you to advance your career. Become a member.

How can we help you?
