Founded in 1960, PRSA NJ is one of five Chapters in the Tri-State District, and one of the largest Chapters in the country. Our organization is governed by a local board of directors comprising working public relations professionals who hold the offices of president, president-elect, immediate past president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, directors at large, and chairs of the Chapter’s standing committees.
PRSA NJ’s parent organization PRSA was chartered in 1947. Today, with 21,000 members organized into more than 100 Chapters and 10 districts, it is the world’s largest and foremost organization of public relations professionals, providing professional development, setting standards of excellence and upholding principles of ethics for its members and the multi-billion dollar global public relations profession.

At both the national and local levels, PRSA and its Chapters also advocate for greater understanding and adoption of public relations services, and act as one of the industry’s leading voices on the important business and professional issues of our time.
