The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) is the nation’s largest community of public relations and communications professionals. PRSA is organized into 10 regions, called districts. The Tri-State District covers New York, New Jersey, Connecticut Valley, Southern Connecticut, and Westchester/Fairfield chapters.

PRSA’s Tri-State district is a unified voice for the interests of membership throughout the region to the national office, addressing issues of common interest. These regional groupings of chapters provide support, shared resources, and leadership cultivation for the next generation of professionals to lead the association and serve as advocates for the profession. Some of our goals include:

  • Putting together an awesome annual conference (see highlights from the 2015 Tri-State conference here)
  • Programming to unite the different local chapters in the district
  • Leadership training
  • Increasing presence or PRSA in the PR, communications, and marketing industry

We are actively recruiting new members to join the board! If you are interested, please contact us!
