The Richmond chapter of the Public Relations Society of America is a professional association that serves public relations practitioners living and working in Central Virginia.
The Richmond chapter has roots that go back nearly 70 years, to the founding in 1946 of the Richmond Public Relations Association. In 1995, the Richmond Public Relations Association merged with the Old Dominion Chapter of PRSA, establishing one of the largest PRSA chapters in the country. Today, PRSA Richmond serves over 300 members.
The chapter is driven by its mission to help a diverse community of members:
- Advocate for the profession
- Achieve ethical and professional excellence
- Drive strategic outcomes for their organizations
