Formed in 1959, the Raleigh Public Relations Society (RPRS) aims to advance the art and science of public relations and to strengthen communication, understanding and cooperation among the diverse individuals, groups and institutions of the Society.
Professionals from all areas of public relations, including government, non-profit organizations, corporate, educational institutions, and private communication and design firms join RPRS.
RPRS sponsors monthly meetings that provide an excellent opportunity to learn, network and share ideas with other public relations professionals. The meetings focus on the latest issues affecting the public relations industry and often include a guest speaker. Meetings are held during lunch on the fourth Tuesday of each month. Guests are welcome and encouraged to join.
In addition to the monthly lunch meetings RPRS hosts several after-work networking events throughout the year, offering members and guests a chance to converse in a business casual setting. RPRS also holds an annual awards competition and awards banquet to honor recipients. These and other programs offer a variety of professional development opportunities for those in the public relations field.
