Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA)

PRSSA serves its members by enhancing their knowledge of public relations and providing access to professional development opportunities. It serves the public relations profession by helping to develop highly qualified, well-prepared professionals.

The officer positions are president, vice president of chapter development, vice president of advertising, vice president of public relations, vice president of financial planning and vice president of historical affairs. Committee members help officers perform their duties, but do not have as much of a time commitment. By becoming an officer or committee member, students gain the chance to attend the PRSSA national conference and assembly, as well as monthly PRSA meetings, work and network with professionals, and strengthen their PR and leadership skills.

PRSSA holds bimonthly meetings. Once a month, officers and members meet to discuss the organization, UWM and public relations. It is also a chance to meet other students and get help with JAMS homework. The other monthly meeting is a time when speakers from the community can discuss their companies, customers and the profession with students. Free pizza and soda are provided at all meetings. PRSSA also has a yearly date auction fund-raiser and career conference.

Advantages to a PRSSA membership include access to a national internship/entry-level position database called JobCenter, the opportunity to apply for more than $20,000 in scholarships and awards and the chance to write for national publications like FORUM and Connecting with PRSSA. Many leadership opportunities are offered to members on both local and national levels. By attending events like our national conference, regional activities and national assembly, members can network and meet peers and professionals.
