The Georgia Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America is the second largest chapter of public relations professionals in the United States with approximately 800 members. PRSA Georgia is dedicated to developing and enriching the professional lives of Georgia's public relations practitioners.
PRSA Georgia believes that public relations is a management function which addresses the most critical issues of the day with a variety of internal and external publics. It promotes the highest standards of professional competence and ethics, fostering lifelong education and development, and building of understanding and support for public relations among its constituents.
In early July, the College Relations Committee will meet to begin plans for the 2013-2014 academic year. The Committee is responsible for maintaining relationships with PRSSA chapters as well a creating new ones through events, speaking opportunities and social media activities. The Committee also coordinates a day-long Real World PR Conference held in February for college students interested in a career in public relations - the future leaders of our profession. If you are interested in volunteering for this Committee, please contact co-chair Kelsey Schmitt by Monday, July 15. Committee members will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis and must be members of PRSA Georgia.
PRSA Georgia is proud to launch its new web site. In addition to the new look, there are a lot of new features we'll be spotlighting over the next few weeks. We hope you'll look around and see what's new. Please begin by logging in and checking your member data to make sure we've got your most recent information.
The new PRSA Georgia website offers online community groups designed to provide a platform to interact with other members within a defined area of interest. We currently offer online communities for each of our Special Interest Groups and plan to add others as the site develops. PRSA Georgia members can browse available groups and select the groups you would like to join. Once approved by a group administrator, you can collaborate with other group members via private group content, wikis, forums, blogs and file libraries. Join a Community Group and help us grow this new feature of our website.
