Group Membership Program

For employers, The PRSA Group Membership program offers ease of access and additional member benefits that help you focus on what matters most — building business and energizing your team. In addition to team benefits, our program provides employers with:

  • Single Invoicing. Make a single payment each year for group members’ dues, rather than numerous individual payments.
  • Transferability of Membership. Each membership within a group is easily transferable. This is convenient when an employee changes departments or leaves your organization.
  • Ease of Adding New Members. PRSA will prorate the dues to maintain the same term year and renewal date.
  • Employer Posting Opportunities. Receive discounted or free postings on PRSA’s career and employment website, the PRSA Jobcenter.
  • Listings in Online Organization Search. Take advantage of complimentary listings in our Find-A-Firm Directory.
  • The Best Pricing on PRSA National Events. Save on registration for on-site training at the annual PRSA International Conference, as well as various specialty conferences and seminars throughout the year.
  • Geographic and Sector-Specific Networking. Membership to specialty communities, such as our local Chapters (like PRSA Portland) or Professional Interest Sections, is provided according to group size.
