About Us

Public Relations Society of America, based in New York City, is the world's largest organization for public relations professionals helping to advance the profession and the professional.

PRSA is a community of more than 21,000 public relations and communications professionals across the United States, from recent college graduates to the leaders of the world’s largest multinational firms. Our members represent nearly every practice area and professional and academic setting within the public relations field.

In addition, there are more than 10,000 students who are members of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) at colleges and universities here and abroad.

Akron Area PRSA has more than 100 members throughout a 13-county region. Members and students find value in the chapter through a variety of monthly luncheons, networking opportunities, industry conferences, monthly newsletters and the APR Accreditation program.

Introducing PRSA Canton Chapter
Many professionals working in the outskirts of our Akron Area chapter have not always been able to participate as actively as they’d like—missing out on the many benefits PRSA membership provides.

We are pleased to announce an initiative to welcome more practitioners into our chapter. Please say "hello" to the new Canton branch of Akron Area PRSA! This new group will meet monthly in Stark County, offering beneficial networking and professional development programs. Hopefully, this will be the first step to more outlying professionals to have the opportunity to fully enjoy the benefits of PRSA. For more information, visit prsaakron.org/PRSA_Akron_CantonChapter.
