How does membership in PRSA assist you?

PRSA and the Alaska chapter have always been the backbone of my schooling and career. The connections I’ve made, through my volunteer work with my PRSSA chapter and then local chapter, have been one of the greatest gifts. Belonging to the organization has opened doors and built life-long friendships.

What I like best about PRSA is being a part of a group who gets me, and my profession.
