About Us

PRSA Tar Heel Chapter

The Piedmont Triad’s premier public relations professional association

We are an affiliate of the Public Relations Society of America, the largest organization for public relations professionals.

Our chapter holds a wide variety of events to help our members network, stay informed on current issues in the field, and to have a good time. A schedule of upcoming events can be found here.

Our membership is diverse, with practitioners coming from nonprofits, corporate communications, marketing and agencies. We also have one active PRSSA (Public Relations Student Society of America) chapter at Elon University that participates regularly in chapter programs.

Most of our meetings are open to the public, and we love meeting anyone involved in public relations, communications, marketing, and social media. We hope to see you soon!
