Thank you for your interest in the Alabama chapter of the Public Relations Society of America. Our more than 170 members include some of the most respected individuals working for the biggest and best companies in our state. We are the #1 resource for communication professionals in Alabama.


Welcome to 2018!

When I was first contacted 18 months ago about serving as Alabama chapter president this year, it seemed so far away. But, now it is here! And, your new board has hit the ground running with exciting plans that we hope will take our chapter to new levels of engagement, professional development and growth building on the outstanding foundation that has been laid by previous chapter leadership.

We are focusing on membership this year to ensure that all PRSA members across the state have opportunities to participate in the work of our chapter. And, we are setting some ambitious membership goals to ensure that we provide the PRSA opportunity to other public relations professionals in Alabama. Those are just some of the plans we have in place. Over the next few weeks you will be hearing more news about the year head.

I encourage you to become acquainted with all the members of our board. I am grateful to this outstanding group of professionals who have agreed to help lead our chapter in 2018.

But, our chapter is only as strong as its membership, and it takes all of us to make the chapter stronger.  You already have taken the first step by joining PRSA and the Alabama chapter. Be willing to volunteer for a committee or other service. And, be willing to say “yes” when asked. You will benefit, and so will PRSA.

Best wishes to you for a personally and professionally outstanding 2018!
