About Us

The Public Relations Society of America (www.prsa.org), based in New York City, is the world's largest organization for public relations professionals. The Society has more than 31,000 professional and student members. PRSA is organized into 109 Chapters nationwide, 19 Professional Interest Sections, along with Affinity Groups, which represent business and industry, counseling firms, independent practitioners, military, government, associations, hospitals, schools, professional services firms and nonprofit organizations.

The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) has 280 Chapters at colleges and universities-including University of Nevada, Las Vegas-throughout the United States.

Las Vegas is home to a vibrant, active chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. Members of our chapter work in corporations, agencies, associations, service organizations, government, and universities, reflecting the business and professional community of Southern Nevada. Many members are in senior management positions, while others are beginning their careers in public relations.

The Las Vegas Valley Chapter strives to accommodate the varied experience levels of its members. We offer associate memberships to practitioners with less than two years of experience or who are immediate past members of the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA). Member status is reserved for individuals who devote a substantial portion of their time to the professional practice of public relations or teaching and administering public relations courses at an accredited college or university.

The chapter sponsors monthly luncheon seminars, frequent mixers, various professional development seminars throughout the year, and an annual awards program called the Pinnacle Awards.

Currently, the chapter is home to more than 100 public relations practitioners. Guests are always welcome and, of course, membership is encouraged.
