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, usually held at the historic Arizona Inn in the heart of midtown Tucson, update members on the latest tools, trends and topics through presentations by local, regional and national speakers. Guests are always welcomed.
The Annual IMPACT Awards recognize and celebrate public relations excellence in Southern Arizona. In addition,
PRSA Southern Arizona Chapter collaborates regularly with other professional organizations through joint luncheons and networking events.
