About Us

PRSA Boston

The Boston Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America brings together a diverse group of talented professionals committed to enhancing the practice of PR through our work, service and leadership across the region. More than 350 members strong and growing, the Chapter comprises practitioners at all levels who represent public relations firms, independent consultancies, corporations, government agencies, hospitals and health care institutions, professional associations and nonprofit organizations. PRSA Boston also proudly supports public relations education at area universities, extending our mentoring and professional development efforts to six campuses with chapters of the Public Relations Student Society of America and others with PR-preparatory curricula and clubs.

For more than 60 years, PRSA Boston has served as the gold standard for public relations in Boston.

Signature Events

The Boston Chapter’s signature events include the Social Media Summit in May, our Summer Social and Winter Holiday Parties, and the Annual Meeting held in November. In 2016, PRSA Boston will be honored to host PRSA’s Annual Northeast District Conference (PRXNE) at which members from throughout our seven-state region will converge for two days of dynamic keynotes, panels and networking.

Monthly professional development programs tackle a wide variety of topics relevant to today’s practitioner, including: social media, diversity, research, measurement, ethics, writing, strategic communication, crisis communication and media relations. All programs are designed to help members develop and enhance the skills necessary to hone their practice of PR among many dynamic skill arenas.
