Portland Metro Chapter

About Our Chapter

The PRSA Portland Metro Chapter was formed in 1960. It is currently one of the most active PRSA Chapters in the nation with nearly 230 members throughout the Portland metro area, including southwest Washington. The Chapter’s mission is to advance the art and science of public relations in the public interest through:

  • Encouraging research, discussion and study of the problems and techniques of the public relations profession.
  • Strengthening and maintaining the highest standards of service and ethical conduct by all members of the profession.
  • Exchanging the ideas and experiences, and collecting and disseminating information that may enhance or improve the professional knowledge, standards, ethics and standing of the membership.
  • Promoting supportive networking among members.

“Belonging to PRSA is not a ‘nice to do.’ I consider it a ‘must do’ for any communicator who is serious about advancing his or her career. PRSA provides countless educational and networking opportunities.”

- Tom Unger, APR, ABC
