Your Public Relations and Communications Community
in Southern Arizona


PRSA’s Southern Arizona Chapter promotes the practice of public relations in Tucson and in cities, towns and unincorporated areas throughout Southern Arizona. Since 1970, members benefit from monthly meetings, professional development seminars, Chapter communications, a local job bank, and an extensive member directory of public relations practitioners in Southern Arizona.

The Chapter’s Mentorship Program matches experienced professionals with industry newcomers, or those looking to improve their skills in specific areas. The popular PR101 Workshops focus on a variety of topics that provide members a chance to share their expertise with local nonprofits, businesses and community groups.

Monthly luncheons are now held at the historic Scottish Rite Masonic Cathedral in the heart of downtown Tucson, and we regularly update members on the latest tools, trends and topics through presentations by local, regional and national speakers. Guests are always welcomed.

The prestigious PRSA Networking Event and IMPACT Awards of Excellence is held each October. This event is the perfect opportunity to mix and mingle with PR colleagues, communicators and industry leaders. A festive cocktail reception is followed by the recognition of public relations excellence in Southern Arizona. In addition, PRSA Southern Arizona Chapter collaborates regularly with other professional organizations through joint luncheons and networking events.
