Welcome to the Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society (PBPRS). It is a pleasure serving this great organization as we continue building. We have gone from quarterly events to now having our own annual conference. Register now for our 2nd Annual PowerPR Conference June 8, 2018 at Liberty View Independence Visitor Center.
As part of my Presidency, I felt it important to implement an annual conference for African American in the region.
At our 2017 inaugural conference also held at the Liberty View, we received a citation from Philadelphia City Council, presented Communicator of the Year and Organization of the Year Award to persons making an impact in their field and the community.
Founded in 2000, Philadelphia Black Public Relations Society's mission is to provide public relations and communications practitioners throughout the Greater Philadelphia region with professional support. We are committed to serving as an advocate for African-American public relations practitioners. PBPRS accomplishes this by fostering a network between members and other professionals that enable growth and development.
