About Us

About usChartered in 1947, the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) is the world's largest and foremost organization of public relations professionals. PRSA provides professional development, sets standards of excellence and upholds principles of ethics for its members and, more broadly, the multi-billion dollar global public relations profession. We also advocate for greater understanding and adoption of public relations services, and act as one of the industry's leading voices on the important business and professional issues of our time.

The Miami Chapter began its life on October 13, 1955 as the Florida chapter of PRSA. With the founding of an upstate chapter, ours became the South Florida Chapter. When members in Broward County and points north formed the Gulfstream Chapter in 1979, we in Miami-Dade County became the Miami Chapter.

With more than 200 members, the Miami chapter has grown to become the pre-eminent public relations organization in Miami-Dade County and has always enjoyed an outstanding reputation in the PRSA world for the strength of its chapter management and the quality of its programs. PRSA Miami offers members the opportunity to learn, network, develop leadership skills, and advance professionally in an atmosphere of good comradeship.

One particular point of distinction is its endowed scholarship program, the largest and most successful operated by any PRSA chapter. This year the chapter will award eight $1,500 scholarships to students at four universities. They will join nearly 100 students who have shared more than $129,000 in scholarship assistance over the past quarter-century.

PRSA Miami also has a membership that is more diverse than any other PRSA chapter. The chapter’s innovative approach to building a membership base that successfully reflects the multicultural composition of the larger community has both won PRSA national diversity awards and inspired creation of PRSA’s national diversity toolkit.

We invite you to become an active member of our chapter. If you are interested in joining a committee, please contact Jennifer Valdes, President at President@prsamiami.org.
