There’s a sense of equality that comes with merging the former chapters – everybody is now in the same organization that has a larger pool of colleagues, with more resources and a bigger toolbox to support the mission of the chapter.

I always enjoy the Spotlight Awards Ceremony to see what my peers are doing and make connections to learn more about how they created the campaigns.

The value we get from folks in other cities around the region is learning about how they work and connect remotely. Nowadays, we can do our jobs from wherever we are. This is the future of our profession and the business.

There are so many advantages of being a statewide organization, especially for PRSSA members and students at other universities getting exposed to the profession. This makes it way easier to transition into the workplace after graduation.

Founded in 2017, PRSA Oregon is a 501(c)(6) nonprofit organization and a local chapter of the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA). As we become PRSA Oregon, merging membership from around the state with the majority from the former Greater Oregon chapter in Eugene, the former Oregon Capitol chapter in Salem and the former Portland Metro chapter, we are defining a new era for professional communicators in Oregon and SW Washington. Please read our FAQ to learn more.
