Memberships

Members of FPRA belong to a statewide organization focused on enhancing the professional development of public relations and communication professionals. FPRA has 16 professional chapters and 14 student chapters. Members can assign themselves to a home chapter. Home chapters must be established in an area where the member either resides or works. For members where a chapter is outside the reasonable range, these members are at-large. All members enjoy the benefits of membership and can access any chapter event they desire at the offered member rate. Memberships are good for one year from the time of purchase.
