About PRSA Puget Sound

Welcome to the Chapter that Serves Public Relations Professionals throughout Western Washington

PRSA Puget Sound Chapter

The Puget Sound Chapter of PRSA serves public relations professionals throughout Western Washington. Based in Seattle, we are one of the 10 largest chapters in the country. There’s always something going on. Check us out today!

The Puget Sound chapter of PRSA has served Western Washington for 60 years. We provide networking and professional development for our members while advancing the profession and fostering understanding within the communities we serve.

Public relations professionals in the Puget Sound region have played vital, strategic roles in business, government, and education. We have helped launch commercial airliners and computer software, a World’s Fair and the Space Needle. We’ve strategized for major political figures and played critical roles in governments bringing change to the Pacific Northwest.

I joined PRSA because I’ve been employed in the industry for a year and didn’t want to get left in the dust by my peers. I feel it’s necessary to stay up-to-date with current trends and things happening in this profession and thought joining PRSA would be a great way to do just that. I’m happy I finally joined and know it will be a great way to continue my education. Adam Cochran
