“PRSA provides me with training and development on current trends in the PR field. It is always a resource when I have a question — either through my local chapter or through the many online contacts. It also allows me to associate with other professionals in my field; people who get 'what I do.'”

- Brenda Smith, APR, State Farm Insurance Companies, Member Since 2001
