Advancing the Profession and the Professional


Monthly meetings provide the opportunity for interaction and education for PRSA-WV Chapter members and guests. We meet on the third Wednesday of each month, generally for a breakfast or luncheon. Our monthly meetings feature local and regional speakers who can bring new perspective to our members, while providing time for networking and exchanging ideas and information.

Reservations are required for these meetings, so please contact or view our calendar to make your reservation for our next meeting.

Professional development is critical to today's public relations professionals. It provides a mechanism for personal and professional growth by enhancing current job skills and developing new ones. For those who earn the APR designation, it is also mandatory for maintenance of accreditation. In today's business environment, where both time and dollars for education are often scarce, the two half-day professional development seminars provided by PRSA-WV Chapter are a major benefit to chapter members and other professionals in our state. As part of our annual calendar, we feature two outstanding seminars, one in the summer and one in the fall
