HomeAbout the Chapter



The membership and board of directors of the Central New York Chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA-CNY) bring together communications professionals representing business and industry, technology, counseling firms, government, associations, hospitals, schools, professional services firms and nonprofit organizations across Central and Northern New York. Together as peers, we network, socialize, and develop our professional skills.


Professionals join the national society as individuals and may opt to join professional interest sections and local chapters. The Central New York Chapter is one of 116 locally established chapters of the Public Relations Society of America.
