How does membership in PRSA assisted you?

I’ve been involved or a member of PRSSA (in college) and PRSA after graduation. The organization has assisted with my education and profession in different ways as I have reached for different goals. From graduation, to finding a job, to professional development and networking, PRSA has always been a resource I’ve leaned on. What I like best about PRSA Alaska is how welcoming this group is. The chapter is small but mighty, and members are genuinely interested in helping each other and helping to grow the profession.
