What is PPRS?

Pennsylvania Public Relations Society is a professional society dedicated to enhancing professional growth within the public relations field. No matter what industry or type of organization you serve as a public relations professional -- corporation, non-profit, association, government, agency or sole practitioner -- being a PPRS member can benefit you!


PPRS has more than 150 active public relations professionals throughout Central Pennsylvania. Our members represent various types of organizations with expertise in all facets of public relations.

PPRS has been providing professional development to members since its inception in 1950.

Society Meetings

PPRS meetings are generally held the last Thursday of each month with the exception of July, August, October and December. All meetings include a networking opportunity and dinner, followed by a professional development program featuring a guest speaker who is a leader in public relations or a related field.

The society's annual Evening of Honors is held in November, during which new officers are installed and the Ernest R. McDowell Award for Excellence in Public Relations and the Robert M. Fisher Membership Recruitment Award are presented.
